    2. Place sugar, butter, 1/3 cup water, cocoa powder and baking soda in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 mins. Transfer to a large bowl and cool for 15 mins.
    3. Whisk flour and eggs into chocolate mixture until smooth. Spoon into prepared pan, smoothing top.
