Add wet to dry ingredients, mix and lastly fold in chocolate chips.

Pour into greased and lined loaf tin. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts.

Bake at 180C for a minimum of 50 minutes. Check after 45 minutes using a skewer and, if it looks like it's burning on top but still raw inside, cover with a piece of baking parcment and keep cooking till skewer comes out clean when inserted.
