This is honest-to-goodness my favorite dessert ever!  It’s so incredibly easy, and very inexpensive to make!

It’s also magic!  A delicious, rich pudding forms under the cake…um-um-good!

Try it warm with some vanilla ice cream, it can’t be beat!


1 cup flour
1 ½ cups sugar, divided
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup milk
2 Tablespoons cooking oil (such as canola or vegetable)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups boiling water


1.  Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease an 8-inch square pan.

2.  In a medium bowl stir together the flour, ¾ cup sugar, ¼ cup cocoa powder, the baking powder and salt.  Stir in the milk, oil, and vanilla.

3.  Pour batter into prepared pan.  In a small bowl stir together ¾ cup sugar and ¼ cup cocoa.  Cover the top of the batter with the sugar mixture.  Pour boiling water over sugar-DO NOT STIR!

4.  Bake for 40 minutes.  Cool for 30 minutes before serving.

Makes 6-9 servings
