2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350* F. 

Line muffin pan or cupcake pan with paper cups. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.  Set aside. Cream the butter and add the sugar a little at a time until well blended.

Add egg and the vanilla extract together and alternately add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt) a little at a time. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.  Test with a toothpick for doneness. Remove from oven and cool for 30 minutes.  Put icing and sprinkles on top if desired.
