  1. Preheat oven 325 degrees. Spray loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate dish mix together yogurt, milk and vanilla.
  3. In a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy (approx. 3 min.). Add in eggs one at a time mixing after each addition. Reduce speed to low then alternate adding the flour mixture and yogurt mixture, beating after each addition.
  4. Remove about 1 cup of the batter and set aside.
  5. Pour the larger amount of batter in the loaf pan and set aside.
  6. In a small dish heat the 2½ TBLS. of milk for 15 seconds in the microwave, or until it is hot without bubbling over. Add in the chocolate chips and stir until all the chips are melted.
  7. Drop small amounts (the mixture will be thick) of the melted chocolate around the top of the cake batter in the loaf pan. Then add the remainder of the 1 cup batter spread evenly over the top of the chocolate and add more chocolate to the top of the batter, just poking it down with a spoon into the batter.
  8. Place cake into the heated oven and bake approximately 50 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
  9. Cool on rack for 15 minutes then remove from pan to cool completely.
