Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Grease pans. (I usually use heart shaped ones) =)

In small bowl, sift flour, salt & soda together. Add the cocoa powder.
3
In larger bowl, beat butter & sugar together. Add one egg at a time. Beat until smooth
4
Add wet ingredients to egg mixture. At low speed, add a little (about half a cup) of flour mixture at a time.
5
Bake 35-40 minutes for cake, 20-30 minutes for cupcakes ;)
