  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 2/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup cocoa, coffee granules, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Combine milk, oil, and vanilla in a bowl; add to flour mixture, and stir well. Spoon batter into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  3. Combine 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons cocoa. Sprinkle over batter. Pour 1 cup boiling water over batter (do not stir). Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the cake springs back when touched lightly in the center (cake will not test clean when a wooden pick is inserted in center). Serve warm with ice cream.

This cake is incredible! It's really easy, and terrific warm from the oven with some light vanilla ice cream. I've made it several times, and it always satisfies the "chocolate beastie" within. ;-)

bloody awful. came out tasting like a dense unsweetened chocolate bread. there was no gooey center even though i baked it for 25 mins instead of the suggested 30. also i put in more sugar than it says but it was not sweet. bloody awful i say!

DELICIOUS. Made this for my roommate's birthday...served w/ Vanilla ice cream. Its so warm and gooey and tastes really sinful...but it's not! A MUST for chocolate & coffee lovers.

Very easy to make, but I thought it was lacking something... I think that next time I will add melted chocolate or chocolate chips to the mix or more sugar or something. I loved the texture of the cake so much that I'm not going to give up just yet!

As good as everyone says! I think the bit of ice cream is necessary because otherwise it would be overwhelmingly chocolately even for a chocoholic like me.

This is FABULOUS cake. Delicious, easy & quick to prepare and . . . just heavenly.

Quick and easy. I reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup. This cake is really only good when warm out of the oven. I thought it tasted horrible the next day. Really fake chocolate tasting.

I really wasn't impressed with this dish. I usually really like pudding cakes, but this one wasn't anything special. It tasted sort of burned, even though it definitely wasn't, the texture of the cake was off, and it stuck to your teeth. I don't think I'll be making this again.
