Serves:

Makes one 9x5 inch loaf

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

12 oz
chocolate bars or chocolate chips
18 Tbsp
(2-1/4 sticks) butter, softened
1 c
sugar
4
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract
4 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
2 to 4 Tbsp
milk
6 oz
chocolate bark candy coating, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If using chocolate bars, break into squares about 1/2 inch wide; set aside.
2
Cream butter and sugar until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in vanilla.
3
Mix flour, salt and baking powder together and add in two parts to the batter, mixing after each addition.
4
Add milk and mix until the batter is as thick as brownie batter (thick, but spreadable). Fold in chocolate bits.
5
Pour into a buttered 9x5-inch loaf pan. Smooth top. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a knife inserted into center of cake comes out clean (it will have melted chocolate on it). Do not overbake or it will be dry.
6
Let the cake cool completely, then frost it by melting 6 ounces of chocolate bark and spreading it over the top and sides of the cake. Cool and slice.
