  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 ¾ cups white sugar, divided
  • 1 ½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ cups boiling water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place butter into an 8-inch square baking dish and set in the oven to melt while it preheats.

  2. Sift flour, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa together into a medium bowl. Stir in milk and vanilla until smooth.

  3. Stir remaining 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa powder together in a small bowl.

  4. Remove the baking dish from the oven. Pour flour-sugar mixture over melted butter, then sprinkle sugar-cocoa mixture over top. Slowly pour boiling water over everything.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 30 minutes.


If you double the ingredients, you can bake it in a 9×13-inch baking dish.
