The BEST Chocolate Chip Bread You’ll Ever Eat.

In a writer’s block-inspired ADD moment, I decided to bake something yummy for an early fall evening.  Problem was, this recipe was SO easy to make that I had to find other activities to satisfy my lack of attention span.  For something that takes literally five minutes to prepare (and not to mention produces TWO kickass loaves), screw the cookies and go for the bread.  You won’t be sorry.

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F/180° C. Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans.Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl.Combine eggs, milk and vegetable oil in medium bowl. Add to flour mixture; mix just until moistened. Stir in 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Spoon into prepared loaf pans.

Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool on wire racks.
