Ingredients For Easy Chocolate Cobbler

  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 cups boiling water

How to Make Easy Chocolate Cobbler

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the 8 tablespoons of butter in a 9×13-inch glass baking dish and melt it in the oven for about 5 minutes.
  2. Make the Batter: In a medium bowl, mix together 1 1/4 cups of granulated sugar, self-rising flour, vanilla extract, and milk until well combined.
  3. Pour Batter Over Butter: Once the butter is melted, pour the batter over the butter in the baking dish. Do not stir – the key to this cobbler is layering.
  4. Add Cocoa and Sugar: In a separate bowl, mix the remaining 1 cup of granulated sugar with the cocoa powder. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter in the baking dish. Again, do not stir.
  5. Add Boiling Water: Pour the 2 cups of boiling water on top of the cocoa mixture. Do not stir. This will create the gooey, molten chocolate base.
  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the cobbler has set.
  7. Serve: Serve the chocolate cobbler warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate dessert experience.

What to Serve with Easy Chocolate Cobbler

This chocolate cobbler is heavenly on its own, but it’s even better served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or a drizzle of caramel sauce. Fresh berries on the side can also add a refreshing contrast to the rich chocolate flavor.

Tips

  • Self-Rising Flour Substitute: If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make your own by combining 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour with 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Boiling Water: Ensure the water is boiling hot when you pour it over the cocoa mixture to achieve the best texture for the cobbler.
  • Serve Immediately: This dessert is best enjoyed warm, straight out of the oven. The chocolate base will be gooey and perfect for pairing with ice cream.
