Chocolate Cobbler

If you love chocolate, you’re sure to love this recipe! Mouth watering, delicious, melty chocolate cobbler. I made this a few weeks ago for my family and since then my mom made it for a couple she and my dad had over. After the first bite my mom’s friend exclaimed “oh, you are my new best friend.” So…this cobbler is directly linked to winning new friends. I’m only slightly kidding ha! Enjoy 🙂

I found this recipe on Pinterest (it is called My Granny’s Chocolate Cobbler by Sooz Hawkins) and you can find it here.

Chocolate Cobbler

Preparation: 10-15 minutes

Cook: 40 minutes


  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ÂĽ teaspoons Salt
  • 7 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder, Divided
  • 1-ÂĽ cup Sugar, Divided
  • ½ cups Milk
  • â…“ cups Melted Butter
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 1-½ cup Hot Tap Water


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, and 3/4 cup of the white sugar in a medium size bowl. Melt the butter and add it to the dry mixture along with the milk and vanilla. Stir until smooth and pour mixture into an ungreased 8 inch baking dish. In a separate bowl combine the remaining white sugar (1/2 cup), brown sugar, and the remaining cocoa powder (4 tablespoons). Sprinkle this mixture over the batter. Pour the hot tap water over all of the batter. DO NOT STIR (this step is crucial in achieving gooey chocolate goodness). Bake for 40 minutes or until the center is no longer jiggly.

We served ours with ice cream, but it can definitely be eaten on its own or with whipped cream or vanilla Greek yogurt.

Yield: 9 big bowls (since it is so rich I will serve smaller bowls in the future)
