The Best Ever Chocolate Cake Frosting
1/3 c. butter or margarine
4 c. sifted powdered sugar
1/2 c. cocoa
1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Beat butter until fluffy. Gradually add 2 c. sugar and the cocoa, beating well. Slowly add the milk and vanilla. Beat in remaining sugar slowly. Add in additional milk, if needed, to reach spreading consistency.
You can add a bit of creme de menthe flavoring for a tasty mint frosting - just add a little at a time until it tastes good.
For vanilla, simply omit the cocoa and increase the sugar to 4 1/4 c.

Preheat oven to 350°F.
On a sheet of wax or parchment paper, sift together flour, salt and baking powder (or whisk together in a bowl).
In a glass bowl or measuring cup, microwave milk until it begins to steam - about 1 minute (do not boil!). Add butter, stirring until melted. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Using a whisk, beat eggs well, gradually adding sugar. Stir in a few tablespoons of the warm milk; then slowly combine all of the milk with the egg and butter mixture, whisking constantly. Stir in flour mixture, then vanilla or lemon extract (if using lemon extract, 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest may also be added for extra flavor).
Pour batter into a small aluminum foil "snack sized" pan which has been buttered (or sprayed with non-stick spray) and lightly dusted with flour. May also be prepared in mini-cupcake pans.
Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes, or until cake tests done (a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean). Mini muffins will bake in about half the time.
