- Switch to a rubber spatula, stir in the chocolate chips and half chopped walnuts.

- Bake cake in the middle rack of the oven for 15-17 minutes, until it looks golden brown on top.
- Place pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
- Cut into squares and enjoy plain or with a tall glass of milk or hot cup of coffee.
