Chocolate Cobbler

Another dessert I brought to the BBQ on Memorial Day, was this Chocolate Cobbler I saw mentioned on Pioneer Woman's Site. I was drooling just looking at the photos. This cobbler is super simple to throw together and really is out of this world! The original recipe comes from Susan Hawkins and she posted it on Tasty Kitchen.

Granny's Chocolate Cobbler Recipe see on Pioneer Woman from TastyKitchen

1 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
7 tablespoons cocoa powder, divided
1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup milk
1/3 melted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 cups hot tap water

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. First stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa, and 3/4 cup of white sugar. Reserve the remaining cocoa and sugar.

Stir in the milk, melted butter and vanilla to the flour mixture. Mix until smooth. Pour the mixture into an ungreased 8 inch baking dish. (I used a 9 inch square.)

In separate bowl, mix the remaining white sugar (1/2 cup), the brown sugar and remaining 4 tablespoons of cocoa. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter.

Pour the hot tap water over all. DO NOT STIR!

Bake for about 40 minutes or until the center is set. (Mine was ready in about 35 minutes)
Let stand for a few mintues. Serve with ice cream. It will be warm and gooey in the center, dont worry this is how it is suppose to turn out. It similar to a molten chocolate cake...heaven!!

As I was trying to get a good picture, the ice cream was melting quickly so this will have to do.

You will not be disappointed by this recipe at all! Make sure to serve with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
