Frosting
8 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy cream

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8-inch glass or ceramic baking dish with parchment paper and spray sides and bottom. If using a metal baking pan, heat oven to 325.
Mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in bowl of stand mixer.
Add in egg, milk, oil, and vanilla and mix on low until incorporated. When mixed in increase speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes.
Add in boiling water and gently stir- batter will be very thin.
Pour batter into prepared dish. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick is removed clean.
Cool for 10 minutes in pan, then continue cooling on a rack until room temperature.
While cake is cooling, make the frosting.

Cook the chocolate chips and heavy cream in the top of a double boiler over simmering water until smooth and warm, stirring occasionally.
