  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 5 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 pound powdered sugar

Prepare the Cake

  1. Mix sugar, flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Combine butter, water, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan, bring to a boil.
  3. Remove from heat then pour into dry ingredients.

  3. Carefully spoon a tablespoon of frosting over each bite. Frosting will set after a few minutes. Serve and enjoy!
