In a small, heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate, stirring constantly; remove from heat. Or, in a small glass bowl, microwave chocolate on high for 2-3 minutes, stirring after each minute. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottom and sides of a loaf pan. In large bowl, combine all remaining ingredients, except confectioners' sugar. With electric mixer at medium speed, beat one minute, scraping bowl constantly; or beat 100 strokes by hand... Pour mixture into prepared pan.
Bake 55-65 minutes, or until cake tester inserted into center of loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf 10 minutes in pan on rack. Gently remove loaf from pan; cool completely before slicing. Wrap loaf tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Store in refrigerator. Before serving, sprinkle top of loaf with sifted confectioners' sugar. Makes 18 slices.
