Easiest chocolate cake recipe ever!!!!

Hello ladies,
Thought that I would pop this up here for those of you who might be interested.

Chocolate Cake.....
50g butter.
1 cup self raising flour.
1/2 cup of milk.
1 teaspoon vanilla essence.
3 tablespoons cocoa.
1 cup white sugar.
2 eggs.

Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees.
Place all ingredients in a bowl and blend with electric mixer for one minute (until combined).
Pour into prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for around 40 minutes or until cooked.

Chocolate Butter Icing.....
1 1/2 cups icing sugar.
60g butter (softened, NOT MELTED!).
2 tablespoons boiling water.
1/4 teaspoon vanilla.
1/4 cup cocoa.

Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix until combined to make a thick and creamy chocolate butter icing.
Do not add any more liquid than what is required by the recipe or the icing will become runny. You will need to stir it a bit until the butter is mixed in.

THAT'S IT! How easy is that?!? I love those "just chuck all the ingredients in a bowl and mix" recipes, don't you?
Try it out and let me know what you think.
