With Easter right around the corner, I thought this recipe might come in handy. My step-daughter, Tori, found this recipe on Pinterest. I’ve traced the recipe back to its origins, see here.
Much to our surprise, it has become a family favorite. It reminds me of a molten lava cake. Served warm with ice cream…well, I just don’t have the words to describe how amazing it is. You will not be disappointed. No Pinterest fail here.
My Granny’s Chocolate Cobbler
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
7 TBL cocoa powder – divided
1 1/4 cup sugar – divided
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1 1/2 cups hot tap water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the white sugar. Reserve the remains cocoa and sugar.
Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture. Mix until smooth.
Pour the picture into an engrossed 8-inch baking dish.
In a separate small bowl, mix the remaining white sugar (it should be 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.
Let stand for a few minutes if you can hold yourself back. Serve with ice cream.
I doubled the recipe and used a 9X13 or larger dish. I also put a cookie sheet under the dish as it sometimes bubbles over.Enjoy!!
