Melt 2 sticks of margarine in a 9x13x2" pan. In a bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour, 3/4 cup milk, and 2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring.(I used Kay's Watkins vanilla). Drizzle this over the melted margarine. Mix 6 tablespoons cocoa and 1 cup sugar. Sprinkle this over mixture in pan. Pour 1 3/4 cups of water over the top slowly. Make sure all is wet. I use a spoon and press lightly. Don't stir.
Bake at 350*F oven for 20-25 minutes (I cooked about 30 minutes). The mixture should be moist.
*This was the first recipe I used and I followed the lead of my dear friend, Barbara:) She used the dark cocoa powder so I tried it on this and it was really GOOD! I'll post pictures the next time I make it. We topped this recipe with whipped topping.
