I've made this King Arthur Whole Wheat Pecan Bread many times and LOVE it:
However, I find it very slow to rise. Does anyone know if nuts in bread dough inhibit rising? I've googled a bit and really found nothing helpful. One publication said that lots of walnuts inhibit rising, but this recipe uses pecans. Another publication says that lots of nuts inhibit rising, but I'd hardly call one cup of pecans in a loaf of bread lots of nuts .
