Add nuts and mix by hand

Grease bread pan

Cook for 50 minutes at 350 degrees

Check with toothpick for doneness (may need to cook longer, possibly 15 more minutes.)

This recipe can also be turned into muffins. Simply scoop the batter into 12 muffin cups. Cook at the same temperature but reduce bake time to 25 minutes.
