Chocolate Loaf Cake

My Mom used to make a cake like this that the family loved. This recipe is about the closest I have come to duplicating it.

1 Cup boiling water
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
confectioner’s sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In small bowl, pour boiling water over chocolate squares. Still until melted, let cool.
Grease and flour a 9 X 5 loaf pan.
In mixer bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, and beat until well mixed.
At low speed, mix in a fourth of the flour mixture alternating with some of the sour cream. Scrape the bowl often. Repeat until all the flour and sour cream have been incorporated.
Stir in chocolate mixture until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 60 to 70 minutes or until cake tester inserted in middle comes out clean.
Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove from pan and finish cooling on rack.
Dust with confectioner’s sugar before serving.
