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.

    Ah I’m so excited about this post! I’m actually not a fan of peach or anything cobbler because my taste for fruit is so limited, I know I’m weird. But this looks so good, I’m definitely going to try it out.

    Oh my, I love this, my grandma used to make this on Sundays when we’d go eat at her house. Here’s the thing, double (at least) the 2 Tbsp cocoa in the batter (cocoa has protein, fiber, and not much fat, so ummm, that makes it healthier right?), and sub boiling whole milk for the water in the final step—-so much worse for you, but sooooo yummy!

      I tried this too. Something is off with this recipe. It does not turn out right. It is too thick and you cannot ‘pour’ it into the pan. It came out with a thick cake-like batter. It is a good recipe, but I have had more success in the past with this one: https://www.hersheys.com/recipes/recipe-details.aspx?id=4761

    This recipe looks and sounds so delicious…will you please give me an idea of how big of a baking vessel to use? You wrote that you used an 8 inch oval..but was it one quart…two quarts..might one use an 8 inch cake tin…? Thank you for any help you can give me…I really want to make this dessert as I am a true chocolohic…

    • Jessica — October 8th, 2010 @ 6:20 pm

      The original recipe calls for an 8 inch square baking dish, so I think a cake tin would work too!

    Do you think you could sub in 1 cup whole wheat flour for the white flour?

    • Jessica — November 13th, 2010 @ 11:22 pm

      I haven’t tried it personally, but I would think it would be fine. Whole wheat pastry flour (as opposed to regular whole wheat) may be better and less gritty. Let me know if you try!

    I just made this for dessert tonight. I’m not sure if maybe I made an error or what happened but it doesn’t really look like your picture. It basically looks like a chocolate cake floating on top of a sea of chocolate fudge. Did I do something wrong or is this actually what it’s supposed to be? It tasted fantastic, but wish the fudge part was more mixed throughout the cake as opposed to something I’d have to spoon on top.

    Reply

    • Jessica — January 2nd, 2011 @ 1:09 am

      Underneath the cake layer it is almost like a chocolate “pudding” – chances are you may have needed to bake it a little longer (oven temperatures all differ) just to get the top to firm up more. But that is what it is supposed to be like!

    Cracker Barrel use to have a dessert called Chocolate Cobbler just like this, but it had nuts in it, too. They served it with vanilla ice cream & hot fudge. I really miss it, so I think I’ll be trying this out!

    Hi Jessica :) I made this tonight for our Valentine’s dessert and OF COURSE we had some warm out of the oven! OMG! Girl this is so good! I used whole wheat pastry flour and turbinado sugar instead of white. I let it sit for a few minutes and then the bottom “fudginess” thickened some. It was very good and we loved it! Can’t wait to try your other recipes!

    Hi Jessica,

    I’m a big fan of your blog. I tried your version, however,I think its not as chocolatey as I thought it should be ! You see, when it comes to baked good, the richer the better =p

    May I please recommend something else ? You see, I modified the recipe a little.

    Instead of pouring the Hot Water over the flour mixture, try pouring HOT COCOA!

    You can make the hot cocoa by combining (1-3/4 cup of Hot water + 3 TBS cocoa powder + 3 TBS sugar)

    Now, please don’t hate me. I know you want it.

    Regards,
    May
