Chocolate Chip and Pecan Quick Bread

Let’s Make It!
Okay, brace yourself for the work ahead. Combine and whisk all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Add the liquid ingredients, stir gently with a rubber spatula until half incorporated. Then add chocolate chips.
Next, stir, still gently, just until the ingredients are combined. No need for over mixing, you are looking for a chunky batter.
Pour and scrape the batter into a 9×5 inch loaf pan that is lined with parchment paper. Top the batter with the chocolate chips, then sprinkle the chopped pecans.
Bake at 350 F for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center of the cake comes out clean. That wasn’t so hard, was it?
Some words of caution though. You need to cool the cake completely before slicing it. I mean a crumbled cake is also delicious, but if you want neat slices, allow the cake to cool 🙂
Lastly, enjoy every slice! Happy baking ❤.
