I don’t have many words about this concoction.

I love cobblers, and when I discovered there was such a thing as chocolate cobbler? I just about lost my marbles. How could something so wonderful exist? Whoever created this recipe had me in mind. No doubt.

I imagined pieces of chocolate and your typical “dough.” Never did I think it was 100% chock full of chocolate goodness.

Clearly I couldn’t contain myself.

I ate most of it right out of the dish.

Though it is fabulous when hot and mixed with cold ice cream.

And not only is is scrumptious, but it is so easy.  It’s fast too.



There is only one way I can describe this dessert: batter. It is like brownie batter or cake batter, mixed with fluffy cake and chewy brownies all in one.

It might be the most sinful dessert I ever made. My thighs agree.



Chocolate Cobbler

from Taste of Home

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup milk

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup packed brown sugar

1-3/4 cups hot water

Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder sugar and 2 tablespoons cocoa. Stir in milk and oil. Pour into a baking dish – I used an 8-inch oval. Combine the brown sugar and remaining cocoa and sprinkle over batter. Pour hot water over top (do not stir). Bake for 40-45 minutes.





This rocked my socks off.

You have to try it this weekend. Or just make it for breakfast.

    Thank you for your blog! I love it, could have written it myself – you think like one of us women who adores food and loves to nourish our naughty self, the one that loves decadent, mature audience food that is not out of a dried up box.

    Thank you and looking forward to more!

    Am I a horrible person that I want to add chocolate chips to the batter for texture?


    • Jenny Ly — April 3rd, 2014 @ 12:46 am

      No, I did too thinking the same thing but the long baking time didn’t allow for the texture change unfortunately :/ I also tried to eyeball 1/3 this recipe and baked it in a deep creme brulee/souffle ramekin so when it first came out it seemed waaayy too watery, but if you let it sit for a while it’ll become deliciously thick and rich :) Also, the recipe doesn’t mention buttering or greasing your ramekin/dish but you definitely should! You don’t want to be scraping off chocolate cobbler from the bottom of your dish like I did :P

    mine turned out more like a pudding.. Is it supposed to set after being outside or did it just not bake long enough?

    I love this recipe! I’m still waiting for it to finish cooking but it smells sooooo good I cant stop drooling! lol. I did make a change as I found out after I started making the cake, I have no milk only a little bit of half and half so I added an egg and a splash of water. Also, I didn’t have any vegetable oil so I just melted some butter instead. I’ll post my results as soon as I try it out. It looks like its baking nicely though. Thanks for the recipe, I cant wait to try more!

    I made this tonight and was really excited by how it looked. it was all perfect and baked and gorgeous. and then I spooned into it and the bottom was soup not fudgey at all :( Did I need to bake it longer. I was afraid I would have burned it if i baked it longer. The cake part was really yummy though.
