Chocolate Cobbler

This recipe comes from the Tasty Kitchen blog.  I saw it a few days ago and was excited to try it.  I think that the title “Chocolate Cobbler” sounds gross…  Don’t ask me why.  Chocolate and cobbler don’t go together in my mind.  I would call this chocolate lava cake.  It’s like the mini one you can get at restaurants that are gooey and cakey at the same time, but it’s big… 
I doubled this recipe and put it in a 9×13 (it baked for close to an hour) and it fed a crowd with rave reviews!
I love that all the ingredients are things I keep on hand!  This recipe is a keeper if you ask me!

Chocolate Cobbler

From Tasty Kitchen

1 cup All-purpose Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoons Salt
7 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder, Divided
1 1/4 cup Sugar, Divided
1/2 cup Milk
1/3 cup Melted Butter
1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar, Packed
1 1/2 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.

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 ice cream using the gooey sauce to spoon over all.
