Sift and measure flour. Then sift flour, sugar, cocoa, salt and baking powder together into a mixing bowl. Melt butter and mix with milk and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients. Add nuts and blend thoroughly. Pour into a well-greased 9x13 inch cake pan.
Mix together the cocoa and sugars. Spread this over the top of the cake batter. Over all pour the 2 cups of hot water and place in a moderate oven (350 degrees F.) to bake for 1 hour. This is a rich chocolate cake with chocolate sauce underneath. It is best served slightly warm with whipped cream or ice cream. Delicious!
