In a small bowl, mix together remaining sugar and cocoa; sprinkle evenly over batter. Pour boiling water over batter; do not stir. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve warm.

I made a little well and added the milk and vanilla flavoring.
The batter will be very thick!!
I sprinkled the sugar-cocoa mixture over the batter.
I even served it with a scoop of ice cream. My mother will be so proud!
