A simple recipe for a moist single layer 8 Inch Chocolate Cake and Chocolate Glaze.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup butter , melted
1 cup milk (more if you prefer a thinner coating)
4 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar (if you prefer it sweeter, you can add another 1/4 cup)
1 Tablespoon corn starch
Preheat over to 350 degrees F
In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
Add egg and butter; mix well. Pour into a greased 8-inch square baking pan.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool.
Combine milk, cocoa powder, sugar, and corn starch into a blender or mix thoroughly.
Pour into sauce pan and cook over low-medium heat stirring frequently so the mixture does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Once the mixture begins to thicken (approx 5-8min), remove it from heat and pour it over the cake while still warm.
Yields 9 servings.
