  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

  2. Beat butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture; beat at low speed after each addition just until blended. Stir in vanilla. Add egg white, mixing well.
