This cobbler calls for nothing but the staple ingredients most people are stocked with. It's all just simple things in your cabinet that you grab and go. The recipe does call for espresso powder, but if you don't have it on hand, just skip it.
Servings 6 servings
For the cobbler:
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup flour
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon espresso powder
- 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
For the topping:
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups hot water
- Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for serving
To make the cobbler, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the butter in an 8x8 baking dish and put inoven while it preheats until butter has melted.
Mix together dry ingredients.
Whisk milk and vanilla into dry ingredients until well combined.
When butter has melted, carefully spoon the chocolate mixture over the melted butter evenly.
To make the topping, mix together the dry ingredients with a whisk. Sprinkle over the top of the chocolate cobbler.
Slowly and carefully pour the hot water over the top, being sure to cover the topping with water.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until the top has firmed up, but the cobbler is still quite jiggly in the middle.
Serve warm with either vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
