½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ teaspoon ground ginger

½ teaspoon ground cloves

GLAZE

½ cup sifted powdered sugar

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1 to 2 tablespoons heavy cream

•Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour with soda, salt and spices.

•Stir in chocolate chips and ¾ cup of walnuts.

•Grease a 9-by-5 loaf pan with butter, then pour in batter. Sprinkle top with remaining walnuts.

•Bake 65 to 75 minutes, until loaf springs back when touched lightly in the center.

•While loaf is baking, make glaze by combining all ingredients until well-incorporated. When loaf comes from the oven, remove from pan and drizzle with glaze.

•Let stand up to 6 hours.
