    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8 inch bundt pan with butter and dust with cocoa powder, shaking out excess.
    2. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, butter, cocoa powder, baking soda and 1 cup water. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 2 mins. Transfer to a large bowl. Let cool for 15 mins then beat in eggs and flour, mixing until combined.
