Chocolate Cobbler

This recipe is awesome. I got it off of the pioneer woman, she got it off of her member submitted recipe website, the tasty kitchen, the lady who originally posted it apparently got it from her grandma because her recipe title was "My Grandma's Chocolate Cobbler". Regardless... you have to try it. The directions sound a little weird but just go with it. This turns out to be a cake with it's own chocolate sauce. I thought about serving it with vanilla ice cream but after some deliberation I came to the conclusion that the only thing that can make chocolate better - is more chocolate. SO I served it with chocolate ice cream that has chocolate cookie crumbles in it. Here you go.

1 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
7 Tb cocoa powder, divided
1 ¼ c sugar, divided
½ c milk
1/3 c melted butter
1 ½ tsp vanilla
½ c brown sugar
1 ½ c hot water

Preheat oven to 350
Stir together flour, baking powder, salt 3 Tb cocoa powder and ¾ c sugar. Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture and mix until smooth. Pour into an ungreased 8 inch baking dish.
In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining sugar, brown sugar, and cocoa. Sprinkle evenly over batter. Carefully pour the host tap water over all and do not stir.
Bake for 40 minutes or until center is set.
Let is stand for a few minutes. And serve warm with ice cream.

I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9 X 13 dish and it turned out great.


  1. Oh boy, was that good! Good choice on the chocolate with chocolate. My short term flavor memory continues to buzz. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. I've got a similar recipe for blueberries (using the same technique with hot water) called blueberry pudding cake. This one sounds better, though, since it's chocolate!
