Serves 20


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans.

Place the cream cheese, butter and sugar in a food processor and process until smooth. It may be necessary to do this in 3 or 4 batches.

When smooth, beat in the eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Sift together the flour and baking powder and fold in, along with the chocolate chips.

Spoon into prepared pans and bake for 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve dusted with the sugar.
