CHOCOLATE CHIP POUND CAKE (From Purple Foodie)

This loaf cake is so yummy!  I’ve given it for years to neighbors as Christmas gifts.  And don’t let the pan fool you – this is no BREAD – it is a dense rich and delish pound cake!
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 – 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1 TBSP flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Butter a 9x5 inch loaf pan.  Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.

With a mixer beat together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time.  Then add the vanilla extract.

Fold in the dry ingredients by hand with a spatula.

Finally, stir the 1 TBSP of flour with the chocolate chips, then stir then into the batter (so they won’t sink to the bottom of the pan).

Pour into the loaf pan. Garnish with additional chocolate chips, if desired.

Bake for 40-60 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.  Let cake rest for 15 minutes before inverting to a wire rack.
