Chocolate Chip & Walnut Bread

About the bake

This bread is the perfect nutty, chocolatey loaf you need in your life. If you've overdone the banana bread, or are simply looking for a tasty twist to your sweet loaves, then you will love our Chocolate Chip & Walnut bread - simple to make, and yummy with a cup of tea.

Made with Allinson's Very Strong White Bread flour, this loaf holds it's shape, but its fluffy and light - filled with roughly chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chips, this easy sweet dough recipe is great for breakfast on the go, or serving up your own home-baked coffee shop goodies.

We use Billington's Unrefined Golden sugar in this recipe, which gives the bread a deliciously warm buttery taste and golden colour on the top. Feel free to make this Chocolate Chip & Walnut Cake your own by switching out the walnuts for pecans or macadamia nuts, or the chocolate chips for broken up bits of your favourite chocolate treat.
