Granny’s Chocolate Cobbler

My Granny’s Chocolate Cobbler

This cobbler brings back childhood memories of summer time at my granny’s house. She would make this decadent dessert to go with the homemade vanilla ice cream. I don’t know of anything that melts ice cream better.


* 1 cup All-purpose Flour
* 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
* ¼ teaspoons Salt
* 7 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder, Divided
* 1-¼ cup Sugar, Divided
* ½ cups Milk
* ⅓ cups Melted Butter
* 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
* ½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed
* 1-½ cup Hot Tap Water

Preparation Instructions

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 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 prefer my small oval Corning Ware glass 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 homemade ice cream using the gooey sauce to spoon over all.
