Chocolate Loaf Cake

If u have noticed, I've been baking loaf cakes lately compared to one whole cake. I find it's less time consuming, lesser ingredients and the end result is a smaller cake so I don't have to figure out who I can give the rest of the cake to as there's only 2 of us at home.
So here goes, my husband's favorite...Chocolate Loaf Cake

Ingredients :

1/2 cup unsalted butter (soft)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup fine flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup milk / buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp salt

Method :

Beat butter and sugar till fluffy using an electric mixer. Add in the egg and beat till mixed well. Add in milk and vanilla, beat till just mixed. Remove bowl. Add in sifted flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Mix together till ingredients are well mixed.
Preheat your oven to 170C. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan. Bake for about 50 minutes or till skewer inserted comes out clean.
