How to make it

  • Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl – flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  • Add milk, oil and the vanilla. Mix well with a wooden spoon until you get a firm and silky batter.
  • Butter a baking dish and pour the cake mix.
  • In a bowl mix muscovado sugar, cocoa powder and gently sprinkle over the cake batter.
  • Pour the boiling water over the cake using a large spoon. This sounds crazy, but trust me, it works!
  • Bake in medium oven for about 45 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes before serving.
