Hot Fudge Brownie Cake

My friend Carrie was the person who introduced me to this kind of cake.  Her recipe was a secret, so I had to google to find this one from Southern Living.  This cake HAS to be served warm with ice cream.

Hot Fudge Brownie Cake

1/4 c + 2 T unsweetened cocoa, divided

4) Combine brown sugar, 1/4 c cocoa, and 1/2 c sugar in a small bowl; sprinkle over batter.
5) Using a spoon, drizzle boiling water over batter (do not stir).
