This cake suprises people because the frosting ends up on the bottom!

This was a favourite cake at Chocolate Tasting Day at work several times. To really enjoy this cake, accompany with a big glass of cold milk!



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)

  2. Cream together 3/4 cup sugar and butter. Add the milk and vanilla and mix.

  3. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and 3 tablespoons cocoa, and add to the mixture.

  4. Spread into a greased 9 x 9 inch pan. The batter will be thick.

  5. Combine 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup cocoa. Sprinkle this over the batter.

  6. Finally, pour 1 1/4 cups boiling double strength coffee or water evenly over all.

  7. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
