Choc-chip raisin tea bread


This choc-chip tea bread is not too sweet and is suitable for tea as the name suggests.  Added in some orange rind for more flavour, not forgetting the walnuts that made it nutty .... munch, munch!









Spread on a thin layer of butter if you prefer it to be more buttery ....... Enjoy!
