1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a mixing bowl, blend sugar and butter, then eggs, vanilla, orange oil or extract. Stir in baking powder, salt and flour to make a stiff batter.

Spoon half batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle on chocolate and walnuts (if using) . Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and sugar. Top with remaining batter (use wet hands to pat into place) . Sprinkle with additional sugar and cinnamon.

Bake until set (like a cake) 45-55 minutes. Cool well then chill an hour in freezer.

Preheat oven to 325 F.

Turn loaf out onto a work board and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets and bake to crisp (10-15 minutes), turning once.
