Steam Whistle Loaf Cake

Created by Executive Chef, Chris Klugman, of Summerhill Market.


Preheat oven to 325F (175C). Using 1 tablespoon of the butter, grease the inside of 2 - 9 inch loaf pans. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, bring the beer to a boil. Remove from heat; set aside. Combine remaining butter and sugar in an electric mixer; beat until very creamy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and beer; mix briefly to combine. Gently stir in sour cream, chocolate chips, brown sugar and cinnamon. Divide mixture between loaf pans; bake 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into cakes comes out clean.
