Chocolate Cobbler


I came across this recipe for Chocolate Cobbler while reading through this month's Secret Recipe Club entries. Jennifer from the blog, Jane Deere, had made this Chocolate Cobbler and I couldn't wait to try it since I had all of the ingredients on hand.

I've had cobblers before but this wasn't like anything I've tried in the past. Taken from the words of Jennifer this is, "ooey, gooey, molten death-by-chocolate goodness."

This dessert is so easy and comes together in a snap. The worst part is having to smell this bake in the oven for an hour. Pure torture. The house smelled heavenly. Like a pan of brownies. Drool. Steaming out of the oven I served this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. My guilty pleasure while Itty Bitty napped.

Makes 12 Servings

Stars of the Show:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cup cocoa powder (for the batter)
  • ½ cup cocoa powder, (for the topping)
  • 1 cup sugar, (for the batter)
  • 1 cup sugar, (for the topping) - I did not add any sugar to the topping since I ran out.
  • 1 cup milk - I used skim milk.
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 cups hot water
And Action:

Begin by whisking together flour, baking powder, salt, 1 cup sugar and cup cocoa powder in a mixing bowl. Add the milk, butter, and vanilla; mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon until the batter is nice and smooth.

Spread the batter in an ungreased 9×13 baking pan.

In a separate, smaller bowl, mix the brown sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa powder and 1 cup white sugar. Spread the dry, mixed topping ingredients over the batter in your baking pan.

Drizzle the hot tap water over the dry ingredients. IMPORTANT!! Do Not Stir!
Bake in a 350° oven for 1 hour. 

Served it warm, topped with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

Oh wow... I don't know if I could handle the smell for that long either!

Now.. I wish you didn't post those nutritional stats ;)

Ping - I love any dessert that is piping hot with a scoop of ice cream. This was so chocolatey.

Fallon - The house smelled amazing for hours after. It's worth all of the time on the treadmill. Haha!

Curious Cook said...

OMG this looks absolutely divine. I cant get over how much I want to bite into this. This is so getting made. Have bookmarked it! The only worry is that smell of the cobbler baking that you have warned me about. I wonder if I will have the patience to wait an hour with the sweet smell of sin wafting all around the house! ;)

Lizzy said...

Oh, man, I think this needs to be in my oven soon!!! There will be no complaints about this cobbler :)

Tina said...

This sounds like one you will have to be secretive about! The smell must call all chocoholics to your door, so you will have to hurry and eat a piece. Simply delicious.

Lizzy - Make it. It's a worthy recipe.

Tina - I was smart and made this during the hours when my neighbors were at work. Haha! I know one neighbor who would have banged the door down for this.
