Chocolate Cobbler

I made this tonight and it was amazing. I was a little weirded out by the way you make it, but it worked and was so easy!! Basically you make a batter (similar to a brownie or chocolate cake batter) and pour/spread it into your pan. Next, you mix up some brown sugar, sugar, and cocoa powder and sprinkle that on top. Then, you just pour 1 1/2 cups of hot tap water on top of everything (without stirring it up!) and put it in the oven for 40 minutes. It comes out like a brownie with a crunchy top oozing with this chocolate lava. SO GOOD!!! We didn't have any ice cream, but it would be amazing with some vanilla ice cream right on top!! I'll definitely be making this again!

Chocolate Cobbler
by Susan Hawkins at Tasty Kitchen

  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 7 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder, Divided
  • 1-¼ cup Sugar, Divided
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ⅓ cups Melted Butter
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1-½ cup Hot Tap Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

First stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the white sugar. Reserve the remaining cocoa and sugar.

Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture. Mix until smooth.

Pour the mixture into an ungreased 8-inch baking dish. I prefer my small oval Corning Ware glass dish.

In a separate small bowl, mix the remaining white sugar (it should be 1/2 cup), the brown sugar, and remaining 4 tablespoons of cocoa. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter.

Pour the hot tap water over all. DO NOT STIR!

Bake for about 40 minutes or until the center is set.

Let stand for a few minutes if you can hold yourself back. Serve with homemade ice cream using the gooey sauce to spoon over all.
