A moist, not-to-sweet, easy to make tea bread. Chestnut flour is gluten-free, making it a good choice for quick breads and pancake batters.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup chestnut flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup diced candied orange or lemon peel (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch or 9 by 5 inch loaf pan.
Sift flours, sugar, salt and baking powder together in large mixing bowl. In a small bowl, slightly beat egg; add butter and milk. Add egg-milk mixture to dry ingredients. Stir to blend, using a light touch; don’t overbeat. Gently stir in chocolate chips and orange/lemon peel, if using. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 min. or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto cooling rack. Slice thinly to serve.
