Chocolate Cobbler


3/4 cup sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1/3 cup butter, melted


3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup cocoa powder

Pinch of salt

1 1/4 cups boiling water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Make the base:

Combine sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and mix well; set aside.

Combine milk and melted butter in a medium bowl and mix well. Add flour mixture and mix by hand or with an electric mixer until combined and smooth (some small lumps are OK). Spread mixture into a shallow 2-quart baking dish or 9x9 baking pan (only metal pans will need to be greased).

Make the topping:

Combine sugar, brown sugar, cocoa and salt in a small bowl and mix well. Sprinkle mixture evenly over base batter.

Add vanilla to water then pour water slowly over sugar mixture. Do not stir.


Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until cobbler is nearly set in the middle. When you can really smell it but there’s still a little bit of wiggle in the very center, it’s ready!

Cool 10-15 minutes then serve warm. Serve with vanilla ice cream for a special treat!
