Cream together the butter or margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, then fold in the flour, ground almonds and chocolate chips. Blend in enough of the milk to give a dropping consistency, then stir in the flaked almonds. Spoon into a greased and lined 20 cm/8 in cake tin (pan) and bake in a preheated oven at 180C/350F/gas mark 4 for 1 hour until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then turn out on to a wire rack to finish cooling.
