My Sister-In-Law, Beth, made this for my birthday in 1985.
It's been one of my favorites ever since.
Directions for first set of ingredients:
Sift flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa and sugar together.
Add milk, nuts, butter, and vanilla; blend well.
Pour into greased 2 quart casserole.
Cover with topping mixture.
Directions for topping mixture:
Combine sugar, cocoa, salt and vanilla.
Spread evenly over cake mixture.
Pour boiling water over entire mixture.
DO NOT STIR.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Top with whip cream or ice cream.
Share with a friend it's so good!
Note: You may need a little larger dish to bake in.
I have adjusted this recipe and I've forgotten the exact size I use.
Have fun with a friend and enjoy.
