Chocolate Cobbler (thanks to Miss Amy and her grandmother)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 7 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 1/2 cup hot tap water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the white 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. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before digging in!
