Recipe by Jo Ann L
I have several breads I give as Christmas gifts, and this is one of the ones people like most. With the nuts and chocolate chips, it's certainly not a low-cal treat, but it's delicious.

- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 cup margarine, softened
