Chocolate What? – Granny’s Chocolate Cobbler

Posted by casey on May 20, 2010 in In The Kitchen, Sweet Treats

Surprise, surprise, I was in the mood for chocolate.  So was 76 % of the world’s female population so lay off. (Can I just say that the “womanly chocolate cravings” did not take over my life until I was in college).  Anyway, I was looking around for something new to try and was looking around Pioneer Woman’s website because I haven’t had the time to make any of her recipes since Caden’s arrival.  They are always delicious, but always take some time the first few gos and her work. However, her cooking page, led me to another site which everyone should visit called Tasty Kitchen

You aren’t going to believe what this recipe is called….Chocolate Cobbler.  Yup, cobbler.  it wasn’t a typo.  Technically, it is called “My Granny’s Chocolate Cobbler” and it is the Granny part that caught my eye even more than the chocolate part.  I don’t know about you, but any recipe from my Grandma is going to be good so I had a feeling this wouldn’t let me down. A member from Tasty Kitchen posted it, which made it’s way into Pioneer Woman’s heart and then into mine.  So now, I bring it to you.  In the end, think of it as a Chocolate Molten type dessert….Mmmmmm Mmmmmmm

  • 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

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.
