DirectionsPreheat oven to 350 degreesMix 3/4 Cup of the (white) sugar, four, and 3 Tablespoons of Cocoa. Add milk, then butter and vanilla; beat until smooth. (*I use a whisk. You can use a spoon or whatever you are comfortable with. Do not use a mixer as it puts to much air in the mixture). The batter will be essentially the consistency of a Brownie batter.Pour into baking dish/pan. Set aside.In small bowl mix thoroughly the following: 1/2 Cup of the (white) sugar (this is the remaining amount, 4 Tablespoons Cocoa (this is remaining amount), and all the Brown Sugar. Whisk/stir together 'til well blended/mixed.Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the top of the batter. ***DO NOT STIR***now gently pour hot water over the top of the mixture. Again-->Do Not Stir!!!Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes (it may take more time depending on your oven). The top will look dry and will crack. You can check the "cake part" with a tooth pick or cake tester if you need, but do not push tester all the way to the bottom.This is somewhat like a chocolate cake that makes its own puddin'.
