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.

Stars of the Show:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ⅓ 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
Begin by whisking together flour, baking powder, salt, 1 cup sugar and ⅓ 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!
