“A recipe from an older edition of the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. (The recipe in the newest edition is not as good IMHO.) Warm, chocolate, yum!”

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, 2 T. cocoa, baking powder, and salt). Add the milk, oil, and vanilla and mix until smooth. Stir in the walnuts, if desired. Transfer the batter to a 9x9 baking pan (or roughly equivalent sized pan).
  3. Combine the brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa. Stir in the boiling water. Pour evenly over the batter. Bake about 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. Serve warm.
