Today, apparently, is National Chocolate Cake Day in the states. I’m making it International by celebrating with my favourite chocolate cake recipe.

The Very Best Chocolate Cake

1 Cup white sugar

3 Tbsp butter

1 egg

1/2 C Cocoa – fill with boiling water to make one cup of liquid

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 C boiling water

1 Cup flour

1 tsp. baking powder

:: Cream sugar and butter, add beaten egg and cocoa mixture.

:: Mix soda and boiling water together.

:: Add this and all remaining ingredients.

:: Mix well and pour into greased 9″x9″ pan.

Voila! The best chocolate cake ever.

Seriously folks, it’s all about the boiling water. Enjoy!!
