Yes, I've been doing it again. Craving things that need to be baked, yet not wanting to bake because it's just too stinking hot. Actually, this dish, while it does require baking, doesn't keep the oven going for very long. So now that our highs have dipped into the mid-90s, perhaps I'll give it a go. That is, just as soon as I have guests/other people to help me eat it. Otherwise... Well, you get the picture.

In a medium sauce pan, bring butter, cocoa, water, and oil to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.
Once your cocoa mixture has come to a boil, add it to the buttermilk mixture and blend well, making sure to scrape sides and bottom of bowl.
While cake is baking, prepare frosting.
For that, you will need:
1/2 C (or one stick) of butter
6 T buttermilk
Pour frosting over HOT cake, spreading to edges.

You know, it really is the simple things in life that make us happy. And this, my friends, in simple.
So since simple makes us happy...
Happy Tuesday, y'all!
