Granny’s Chocolate Cobbler

What can I say? What is there to say about heaven in a bowl? If you never make another thing from my blog, make this.


Go, now. Get up out of your chair and head for the kitchen. Ok, maybe not right this second because you need to read the recipe first, but do it.

1 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
7 tablespoons cocoa powder, divided
1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 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.

Add the milk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture and mix until smooth.

Pour the mixture into an ungreased 8-inch baking 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.

Gently pour the hot tap water over it all. DO NOT STIR!

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

Let it stand for a few minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream using the gooey sauce to spoon over it all.

You’re lucky I got through this post without drooling over my keyboard. It was definitely a close call!

Time to get your butt to the kitchen.
