Chocolate Chip Mandelbrot

A crunchy sweet vanilla-flavored bread/cookie with chocolate chips!

2-3 dozen slices

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 to 4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts, optional
1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Optional: Melted chocolate chips, for dipping the bottoms

1. In a large bowl, combine sugar and oil. Stir in eggs. Add orange juice and vanilla.

2. Add flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon, stirring into a very
thick batter. (If batter is too thin, add the extra 1/2 cup flour.)
Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts (if using).

3. Line a large jelly roll pan (or two smaller jelly roll pans) with parchment or waxed paper. Spread the batter onto the prepared pan(s), either into one large strip/log or (if using two pans) two smaller strips/logs. The batter shouldn’t go to the edge of the pan, but it will be somewhat runny and should look like a thick cake batter that didn’t fill the pan. The middle of the “log” will rise during baking.
