2 sticks butter, melted
2½ cups sugar, divided
1½ cups self-rising flour

2 teaspoons vanilla
6 tablespoons cocoa
2 cups water
Heat oven to 350°F. Pour melted butter into a 9x13 baking dish (or one slightly smaller).
In a large bowl, mix together 1½ cups sugar, flour, milk and vanilla to form a thick, pancake-like batter. Pour and spread batter over melted butter in baking dish.
In a small bowl, mix together remaining 1 cup sugar and cocoa. Using a spoon, sprinkle mixture over the top of the batter.
Gently pour 2 cups water over the top of the entire mixture.
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the top becomes slightly firm. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
