  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or plain flour)
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Fudge Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1-1/4 cups boiling water


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a 9-inch square baking pan. Pre-boil water in a kettle while preparing the cake.
  2. For the cake: Combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar with the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add in the milk, butter, and vanilla; whisk until smooth and fairly lump-free.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan or dish and spread evenly.
  4. For the sauce: Combine the remaining 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and remaining 3 tablespoons cocoa powder. Evenly sprinkle the mixture over the batter. Slowly pour the boiling water over the top (DO NOT STIR OR MIX INTO THE BATTER. ALLOW THE WATER TO SIT ON TOP).
  5. Bake for 35 minutes or until the center is almost set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve in dessert dishes with ice cream or whipped cream, and spoon the fudge sauce from the bottom of the pan over the top of each serving of cake.
