Preheat your oven to 350° and grease a 9 x 3″ loaf pan.
Next, cream together the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
After you’ve done that, mix in the eggs and vanilla and combine well.
Now stir in the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and combine well. If you’re using salted butter, make sure that you omit the salt from the recipe.
Finally mix in the buttermilk (or milk), combine well then fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan and bake at 350° for 60-65 minutes. Use the toothpick test to check if it’s done but keep in mind that it likely won’t come out completely clean. Carefully remove your chocolate chip quick bread from the oven, slice and enjoy with a little bit of butter spread on top.
