Preheat your oven to 350°F, then butter and flour a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.
Sift the flour, unsweetened cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the Cabot Unsalted Butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. While beating, gradually add the sugar and beat in the eggs one at a time. Then add vanilla, beating until the mixture is smooth. Alternately add some of the flour mixture and the Cabot Sour Cream, beating just until smooth. Fold in semi-sweet chocolate chips, if using.
Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a knife or skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely in pan. Note that cake may settle in the center as it cools. Enjoy on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
