Chocolate Hot Fudge Pudding Cake or Heaven In A Cake Pan

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2/3 cup butter melted
1 TBSP vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cups hot water

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, because that is what this cake will bake on, obviously.

Stir together the 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar, flour, 1/2 cup cocoa, baking powder, and salt.  Once they are sifted nicely, add the milk, butter and vanilla; beat until smooth.  Pour this beautiful batter straight into your mouth - or into a 9x13 pan (if you actually have self control - because this will make a DANG good cake as well).  Stir together the "plus" ingredients; 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 1 cup brown sugar, 2 1/2 cups hot water.  When that mixture is nice and crumbly sprinkle it evenly over the batter (if it made it in the pan - otherwise, you might need a cold glass of milk to help wash this deliciousness down).  Then (this will seem weird but trust me and do it) you will pour the hot water over the top of all of this goodness - like a blanket.  DO NOT STIR!!!

Place in your previously heated oven.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the center is almost set - and by "set" I mean that the beautiful chocolate crust on top is um... crusty? It seems like an ugly word for what it is -  but this cake will never be "set" because it has a POOL of delicious, hot, liquid heaven underneath its crusty exterior (like some people you  might know).

Let it stand for 15 minutes.  Spoon it into dessert dishes (I won't even recommend straight into your mouth, unless you enjoy 3rd degree burns) and ladle the sauce from the bottom of the pan over the top.

This is delicious garnished with freshly whipped cream.
