  1. Melt chocolate in a saucepan over a very low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar and 1/2 cup of the buttermilk. Stir until well blended. Cool thoroughly. Mix half the flour with the baking powder, soda and salt. Cream butter, and gradually beat in the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar.
