This Chocolate Chip loaf is superb. It's so good, my mom makes this recipe at least once a month. She told me it tastes even better with cherries! I need to try adding cherries next time.
I decided to make this recipe with walnuts, but you can essentially use any type of nuts or omit them completely if you have a nut allergy. In any case, no matter how you decide to make it, it will be delicious.
Personally, I like a piece of this chocolate chip loaf with my coffee in the morning but my wife likes it any time of the day! Yes, it's that good!
