- 1 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup flour
Using an electric mixer, cream the sugar, butter and salt at high speed until well blended, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the bowl, add the egg and vanilla and beat for 1 minute.
Beat in the cocoa at medium speed until thoroughly blended. Add the flour and mix at low speed just until incorporated.
