Here’s a recipe I found by blog-hopping one day. The only Chocolate Cobbler I’ve ever eaten is the one at Cracker Barrel. It’s more like a brownie with pecans, served warm with vanilla ice cream and chocolate fudge sauce. This is not like that one. It’s like a fruit cobbler, a crusty top with a filling. I expected it to be very rich, but it wasn’t as chocolate-y as I’d expected. Since I *love* chocolate, this was a slight disappointment. My kids loved this recipe, though. I give it four out of five stars. Here it is, in case you’re interested in giving it a whirl.
2 cups All-purpose Flour
4 teaspoons Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Salt
⅓ cup Cocoa powder, (for batter)
½ cup Cocoa powder, (for topping)
1 cup Sugar, (for batter)
1 cup Sugar, (for topping)
1 cup Milk
1/2 cup Melted Butter
3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 cup Brown Sugar, packed
3 cups Hot Tap Water
Begin by whisking together flour, baking powder, salt, 1 cup sugar and ⅓ cup cocoa 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 c. cocoa and 1 c. 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.
This is how it should look when you take it out of the oven:
