You know how we all love those choccy chip nut cookies? Well, imagine that idea in a CAKE! Hmmmmmmmmmmm......I DO love cake, and this one in particular as you can vary the amount of chocolate or nuts, or even the type of nuts - go on - make your OWN version of this recipe. It's also rather unusual as it uses the 'rubbed in' method more usually associated with pastries. As written, this is a lovely 'English Tea Loaf' - you know, slice thin and serve with afternoon tea; but add more chocolate and nuts and it becomes an 'afternoon delight' that you'd be lucky to divide into 8 servings!
