Chocolate Cobbler

Base:

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


Topping:

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:

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!
