- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2/3 cup butter 1/3 cup + 1/3 cup, melted & divided
- 1/2 cup boiling water

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa and baking soda.
Pour in 1/3 cup of the melted butter and whisk until smooth.
Stir in the boiling water until the mixture is smooth. (It will be thick.)
Whisk in the sugar and eggs with the remaining 1/3 cup melted butter.
Add the vanilla and salt and whisk until just incorporated.
Add in the flour and stir until just combined.
Pour and spread the batter into baking pan.
Bake for 35-40 minutes and do not over-bake.
