This self-saucing dessert will have you in chocolate heaven.

  1. Grease a nine-inch glass round baking dish with butter. 
  2. In a bowl whisk together flour, granulated sugar, one-quarter cup of cocoa, and salt until well combined.
  3. To a microwave-safe bowl add butter. Microwave on high for one minute or until melted. Then add milk, and flour mixture. Mix to form a batter.
  4. Spread batter evenly into the prepared baking dish.
  5. In a small bowl mix together the remaining one-quarter cup of cocoa and brown sugar until no lumps can be seen. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the batter.
