How To Make

  • 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.
