Is this a pudding or a cake? As the dessert bakes, the cake rises to the top, leaving a fudgy layer of pudding below. An easy, excellent dessert that everyone loves. Serve warm, topped with whipped cream or ice cream.
3 cups all-purpose white flour
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons baking powder
2-1/4 cups white sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt

In a medium-size bowl, combine the brown sugar, 3/4 cup cocoa, and boiling water. Mix until smooth. Gently pour over the batter. Bake for 35 minutes. Serve warm.
