Chocolate Chip Loaf

I originally found this recipe on, but it linked me to here. This thing was delicious! I definitely want this recipe around for another night like tonight where we were all in the mood for something but we weren't sure what. It was super easy and I already had all the ingredients here at the house. 

1 1/2c flour
1t baking powder
1/2t salt
3/4c sugar
1/2c butter, softened
2 eggs
1/4c sour cream
1t vanilla extract
1c mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used regular)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2″ loaf pan. In medium bowl, stir the flour, baking powder, and salt, blending well; set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and blend well, then add the sour cream and vanilla and blend well. Gradually add the flour mixture to this egg mixture and mix until well blended. Fold in the mini chocolate chips, distributing evenly in batter. Then fill your loaf pan with the batter and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let loaf cool in pan 5-10 minutes before removing, then cool completely on a wire rack. While loaf is cooling, you can make the frosting…
Frosting:1c powdered sugar
1/2c unsweetened cocoa powder
3 1/2T half & half (or more, if you want a thinner glaze)

Stir powdered sugar and cocoa powder together in small bowl. Add the half & half and blend until smooth and creamy.
When loaf is completely cool, frost the top generously with all the frosting (or if you’ve made a thinner glaze, drizzle the loaf generously with the chocolate glaze). Let the frosting or glaze set a little, and then it’s ready to enjoy!
