1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup Coca-Cola or carbonated cola drink

Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, yogurt and vanilla.
Gently heat the butter, cocoa and Coca-Cola in a heavy saucepan until melted, then add to the bowl of dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.
Add the yogurt mixture to the batter and stir well until everything is incorporated.
