My husband calls this Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Bread a cookie in a loaf. It’s a very yummy recipe that works great for mid-afternoon snack or dessert. The cream cheese adds a little extra tang and super creaminess to the bread. This is also a wonderful bread to make around the holiday time to share with friends and neighbors because who doesn’t love chocolate chips?
Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Bread
What you need:
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 8oz cream cheese
- 1 1/4 c. sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 t. vanilla
- 2 c. flour
- 1 t. baking powder
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1/4 c. milk
- 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
How to Make Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Bread
Mix together all the ingredients except for the flour and the milk. Then add 1 cup of flour and 1/8 c. milk. Mix well, then add in the second cup of flour and the rest of the milk. Whipping this dough mixture with the hand mixers isn’t completely necessary but it will give it a slightly less dense texture. It tastes good either way!
Pour the mixture into 2 greased loaf pans or 4 mini loaf pans.
Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes for mini loaves (this recipe will make 4 mini loaves) or 40-45 minutes for a big loaf. (Recipe will make 1 or 2 large loaves depending on the size of your loaf pan.)
Yum! I took this recipe over to all the neighbors on Memorial Day for a little treat. I’ve also given it away as a friends and family gift around the holidays. It’s great for an afternoon treat bread or it makes a perfect dessert bread if you are looking for a little something after a meal.
