Preheat oven to 170°C.
In a bowl, mix together flour, white sugar, 3 tablespoons cocoa, baking powder and salt.
Add in milk, butter and vanilla, stirring until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a glass baking pan. (I used a 9-inch one).
In a separate bowl, mix brown sugar with remaining cocoa.
Sprinkle over batter.
Pour hot water over. Do not stir the mixture.
Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes then remove and leave it to set for about 15 minutes before serving.
