Simple chocolate cake

As far as I'm concerned, this recipe is the best deal you can get: simple and super-delicious. My husband and I ate half a cake in one sitting. It was that good.

1 oz chocolate
0.5 cup coffee
1 cup sugar
1 cup - 2 tbsp flour
0.5 cup sifted cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
0.25 tsp baking powder
0.5 tsp salt
1 egg
0.25 cup oil
0.5 cup buttermilk
0.25 tsp vanilla

2 oz chocolate
1.5 tbsp icing sugar
1 egg
1.5 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 300F. Brew coffee and pour onto chopped chocolate. Allow to melt and mix.

Sift flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and soda, and the salt together. Mix the egg with the oil, buttermilk and vanilla. Add the chocolatey coffee. Add the flour mixture and mix.

Pour into an 8-inch springform pan lined with baking paper and sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 45 minutes. Cool completely on a cookie rack.

Meanwhile, prepare the icing: melt the chocolate. Whip the egg and add the sugar. Pour into melted chocolate and cook until thickened and glossy on medium-low. Add the butter and melt in slowly.

Pour onto cake slowly, once cooled a bit.
