3/4 c. Sugar
1/2 c. butter (softened)
1.5 tsp. vanilla
3/6 c. all purpose flour (I doubled the recipe, so no I am not that insane, that I own 1/6 measuring cup)
1 c. cocoa (Ghirardelli)
1/4 tsp salt
*Note recipe called for 1/2 tsp. baking powder, which I normally remember because it does need some sort of leavening agent... opps we will see how they turned out.
Preheat oven to 325°F, grease 9 in round cake pan (Though you should use a square because of surface area issues, but I couldn't find it, *sigh* just a few more days until I move.) Beat sugar and butter together with an electric mixture until fluffy. Add vanilla, eggs and beat until smooth. Stir in flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder (just because *I* forgot doesn't mean you should) Pour batter into pan, add white chocolate shavings or nuts for added decoration. Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes until fork comes out sticky but not battery. Cool and force your friends to take some so you don't eat them all.
