    1. Cream the softened butter and the sugar together until smooth and fully combined.
    2. Add the 4 eggs and whisk together.
    3. In a separate bowl, sift the flour and the cocoa powder together. Continue whisking the other ingredients in the main bowl, gradually adding in the dry ingredients until mixed fully.
