Prepare the Cake
Mix sugar, flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
Combine butter, water, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan, bring to a boil.
Remove from heat then pour into dry ingredients.
Gently mix together.
Fold in buttermilk and eggs. Blend well. The batter will be thin.
Using a small cookie scoop, place one scoop of batter in each muffin cup.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
Remove from oven. Place on wire racks to cool completely before frosting.
In a medium saucepan heat milk, butter and cocoa, over medium heat, until it comes to a boil.
Remove from heat then whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth and no lumps remain.
Carefully spoon a tablespoon of frosting over each bite. Frosting will set after a few minutes. Serve and enjoy!
