Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 325 for Pyrex. When oven is ready begin to make the cake. Place the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in an 8 x 8 cake pan. Using a fork, stir the dry ingredients together until completely blended and uniform in color with no visible streaks.
Pour on the water, vanilla,oil, and vinegar and immediately stir with the fork until completely blended. It's a good idea to use a rubber spatula at this point to help mix the batter that's lodged in the corners. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes until toothpick is clean. Cool the cake completely on a wire rack, about two hours. Do not unmold,it is to be served in the pan.
To make the glaze, combine the sugar, butter, milk and cocoa in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to a lively simmer and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat and stir until cool, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla, then pour the glaze on the cake. Let cool completely before serving, about an hour.
