Talking Re: Need a made from scratch cake recipe

Super Chocolate Cake
out the Best of the Best and More cookbook
from the Best of Bridge series

this is pretty foolproof
1cup white sugar
3tbsp butter, room temp
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup cocoa, fill with boiling water to make 1 cup of liquid
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

cream together sugar and butter, add egg and cocoa liquid. Mix soda and boiling water. add this, flour, and baking powder, mix well. Pour into greased 9" square pan (batter will be thin). Bake at 350degreesF (180C)for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (this cake doubles well. bake in a 9x13" pan or a bundt pan for 40-50 minutes)

Hope that helps...add some classic butter icing (I usually find a recipe on the back of my icing sugar bag and add a bit of cocoa if I want it extra chocolatey!)
