   Preparations:  Divide sugar and buttermilk as below.
   Beat egg. Soften butter.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
   Butter and flour and 2-inch deep, 8-inch round cake
   pan and set aside. Beat 1/2 cup sugar, cocoa, 1/4 cup
   buttermilk, and vanilla.
   In another bowl, combine butter and 1/2 cup sugar;
   beat until light and creamy.  Add beaten egg a little
   at a time, beating until smooth between each addition.

   parts alternating with 1/4 cup buttermilk. Pour batter

   out onto a cake rack to cool.
   For a glaze:  In a double boiler, melt chocolate,
   cream, and vanilla. Stir until smooth and let cool to
   warm.  Pour over cake.
   If desire, before glazing, split cake in half and
   spread your choice of filling between the layers.
