I am a big fan of cobbler. Easy to make, great dessert – with or without ice cream. (But obviously better with).
And almost all cobblers are made with fruit – so you can give yourself a little pat on the back for being all healthy and shit.
But then I found a recipe.
A cobbler without fruit.
A cobbler with CHOCOLATE!!!!!
I have waited far too long without trying this recipe.
It is all I had hoped for – and more.
Easy as any cobbler recipe – but comes out tasting like a brownie!
I’ll admit, it looks a little – uh – “used” but I assure you it’s great – and even better warm with ice cream.
1 C butter 1 ¼ C sugar 1 ½ C self-rising flour 1 t vanilla ¾ C milk
1 C sugar 6 T cocoa powder 2 C boiling water
In 9×13 glass baking dish, melt the butter in the oven for 5 minutes.
In bowl, mix together 1 ¼ C sugar, flour, vanilla and milk.
Once butter is melted, pour batter (mine was too thick to pour – I spooned) over butter. DO NOT STIR!!
In separate bowl, mix together 1 C sugar and cocoa powder. Sprinkle mixture on top of batter. DO NOT STIR!!!!
Pour boiling water on top. DO NOT STIR!!!
Bake 40-45 minutes. Serve warm
Self Rising Flour: Substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1 ½ t baking powder and ½ salt in a measuring cup. Add flour to measure 1 C
