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.

    This looks sort of like a lava cake, but the lava is a little more mixed in…Josh’s dad would go NUTS for this…I may need to make it this weekend for their visit

    I think you should sell this to nearby restaurants right now. I don’t know how you didn’t eat this entire thing when it came out of the oven. I can just imagine how good it would be from that picture.

    I have never heard of chocolate cobbler. And I am all about cobbler! Ok, so is it like a brownie or a pudding cake or is it like a regular fruit cobbler?

    • Jessica — August 3rd, 2010 @ 5:02 am

      It’s almost a combo of all 3, if that makes sense. The batter almost turns into a chocolate “fudge sauce” swirled throughout.

I’m going to be at the beach with my bf’s parents for a week and I NEED to impress them with my domestic skills. I think I’m just going to go through your recipes and see which ones look like the yummiest and easiest to make :) I’m positive it will be a hit (unless I royally screw something up!), so thank you in advance!

    This totally reminds me of a recipe I embarrasingly used to make quite often in college… it was from the book Sweet Potato Queens. http://www.wchstv.com/gmarecipes/chocolatestuff.shtml Yours sounds a wee bit healthier since it doesn’t have a STICK of butter. Actually, I think your version is health food… yeeeeeaahhhhhh, health food, that’s right!! In fact I bet my baby really neeeeeeeeds some chocolate cobbler. Don’t you think?!?!?!? ;)

    I meant to paste the recipe in:

    2 cans cherry pie filling
    1 can Coca Cola
    1 chocolate cake mix

    Pour pie filling in the bottom of a 12″ Dutch Oven. Cover evenly with cake mix and pour Coke on top, don’t stir. Bake on hot coals for 30-35 minutes or till it looks done.

    I had made a Chocolate Cobbler last year and it didn’t turn out well, which I think was because I used the wrong type of flour or something. I’ve been thinking about it recently, wanting to try it again, so I’ll definitely be giving your recipe a go :D

    How do you tell if it’s done? Like, with cupcakes you use the whole stick a toothpick in it thing, but this wouldn’t be like that cause it’s gooey inside… Looks amazing, anyway!

    when does oil, sugar and cocoa powder ever NOT taste good?! i mean hello..this looks fabooooosh!!! i want it now!

    the crazy thing is, this is VEGAN. all you need to do is use nondairy milk (almond, soy,or even water) and it’s vegan. This is why when ppl automatically assume vegan = health food, you can prove them wrong right here!
