Chocolate Chip Walnut Loaf

I'm sorry that it's been awhile since I last posted! Things have been so busy lately that I've been having a hard time keeping up. Well, anyway, :) I thought I would share this recipe that I made a while back and will certainly be making again, since we all enjoyed it, plus it was easy to mix up. :)

1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
4 Tbsp. cornstarch
9 Tbsp. butter, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
grated rind of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and cornstarch, set aside. With an electric mixer, cream the butter until soft. Add the sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and the eggs 1 at a time, beat thoroughly. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Fold in the walnuts, lemon rind, and chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the a greased 81/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Enjoy! :)
