1 1/2 tablespoons
unsweetened cocoa powder
unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups
I didn't have self-rising flour, so I substituted with 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder. I didn't change anything else, and this dessert turned out very well. It is not too sweet or too decadent, but it satisfies a chocolate craving. I let it cool until it was just warm and the sauce was thickening, and then served it in bowls with scoops of vanilla ice cream. I will definitely make this again.
The measurements on this recipe are definitely off. Make sure you read the reviews before proceeding. I made as directed and while my kids enjoyed the flavor, the end result was a little on the greasy side and very runny. Next time I will cut the butter down to 4 Tbsp and increase the flour, sugar, cocoa powder,milk mixture (maybe even double it?). I think if you tweaked the measurements you could end up with something similar to a molten chocolate cake. It has potential but as written it's not right.
This tasted delicious and was quick to prepare. My husband said "Oh boy, is this good!" The sauce thickens as it cools. If you don't have self-rising flour, use 1 cup flour with 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt.
I've never heard of chocolate cobbler but I was in a last minute pinch for a dessert that was quick, easy and cheap. I skeptically threw this together with the following changes: made self rise flour with 1c. ap. flour, 1 1/2 tsp bkg pwdr, 1 tsp. salt. Used only 4 TBSP butter and about 1 1/4 C boiling water. Used heaping measurements for the Cocoa Powder. I also baked it in my 9x9 stoneware piece. This dessert completely exceeded my expectations. The cake-like part set up perfectly and the "sauce" was exactly like hot fudge - built right in there! I couldn't have been happier with the results and am thrilled to add this to my collection of sweet, simple - TOTALLY satisfying recipes. Anyone who's tried it with a result that didn't knock their socks off should try it again with some changes!
I came online looking for a version of the chocolate cobbler called "Chocolate Stuff" served at Barbara Jean's restaurant on St. Simon's Island. Another review listed here said this was a very good version and I have to agree! It was a huge hit with everyone I served it to, both kids and adults. I served it with vanilla ice cream this time, I might try just fresh whipped cream next time around. I'm sure I'll make it again soon. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan with no problems.
This is one of the best chocolate desserts I have ever made. I really didn't let it cool enough before I tasted it, but I just couldn't wait! This recipe deserves a lot more than 5 stars because the taste is wonderful and it is so, so easy. This cobbler is rich and the right amount of rich. The sauce is a perfect smooth chocolate and is complemented by the cakey topping, which by itself is a treat. Chocolate cobbler is perfect for a chocolate fix. Thanks for a wonderful recipe I will make again and again! (Since I didn't have self-rising flour, I used 1 cup flour and added 1 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt).
I am known to change every recipe. This one I made it exactly how it was written. I thought it was FANTASTIC! Some people commented that is was too sweet....what??!! It's chocolate cobbler people. What do you expect? I thought it was perfect and I am not a huge chcolate fan.
I just finished enjoying this warm, chocolatety, gooey, mouth-watering goodness and am in heaven. Thank goodness I'm not a celebrity because I wouldn't want any shots of me licking the bowl clean in the next gossip magazine.
