Ooey Gooey Chocolate Cobbler

When Kayla was visiting us during her spring break she had her 21st birthday.  Now I am a firm believer in birthdays, and so is Will.  As a matter of fact we celebrate birthday week in our house.  It’s pretty much the greatest thing ever.  Birthday treatment for a whole week!

I am also a firm believer in birthday cake/cake alternative.  You tell me what you want and I will make it.  Growing up I always experimented a lot with mine. My favorite kind of cake is strawberry, but I would experiment with the frosting- chocolate, cookies-n-cream, coconut, lemon…. Anyway the moral of the story is, it’s your birthday, you want it, and I’ll make it.

Well Kayla wanted something that wasn’t a cake, but was chocolate, so I sent her a picture of this ooey, gooey beauty, and she responded with an emphatic yes!

For the original recipe that has a lot of step-by-step pictures go here.  I don’t know the girl who posted this originally or her Granny, but I do know that her Granny must have known her stuff because this chocolate cobbler turned out amazing.

Sorry for the picture.  It was dark, and I stole it off of Kayla’s facebook.

Choco Cobbler 1

Here is what I did for Kayla’s:

1 cup Gluten Free All-purpose Flour/Flour Blend (I can’t remember what I used)

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

7 Big Tablespoons of Cocoa (divided 3 & 4)

1 ¼ cups Sugar (divided ¾ & ½)

½ cup Milk

1/3 cup Melted Butter (we used margarine)

1 ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract (probably used closer to 2 tsp)

½ cup Packed Brown Sugar

1 ½ cups Hot Water

  1. Preheat Oven to 350° & get out an 8×8 pan
  2. Mix together flour, baking powder, 3 Tbsp Cocoa, and ¾ cup sugar.
  3. Add the melted butter, milk and vanilla to the mixture. And mix until smooth.
  4. Pour your batter into the pan.
  5. Mix together remaining sugar, cocoa, and brown sugar.  Sprinkle it over top of the brownie-like batter in your pan.
  6. Pour the hot water over the top of everything.  Don’t mix it up.  Just let it sit there, and be careful when you put it into the oven.
  7. Bake it for 40 minutes or until the center is just set.  I think that I over baked mine a tad, so I might check it a couple minutes before the timer goes off.
  8. ENJOY!!!!!

****The recipe calls for a ¼ teaspoon of salt (you mix it with the first round of dry ingredients) but I rarely cook with salt so naturally I didn’t add it to this.
