A dessert worth breaking a diet for...

I saw a recipe on yesterday called chocolate cobbler and I couldn't get the picture out of my mind! It was called My Granny's Chocolate Cobbler, and you know that means I had to try it. Low and behold all the ingredients were magically in the pantry. :0)

My friends and I tested and approved of the dessert...
(please excuse the cell phone camera quality)

And it was gone before the night was over... i promise we didn't eat it all. Josh helped.

So anyway,
here is the recipe if anyone would like to try it out.
And vanilla ice cream on top is required.

Enjoy! No calorie counting allowed.

My Granny's Chocolate Cobbler*

1 cup All-purpose Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
¼ teaspoons Salt
7 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder, Divided
1-¼ cup Sugar, Divided
½ cups Milk
⅓ cups Melted Butter
1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Packed
1-½ cup Hot Tap Water

Preparation Instructions

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. I prefer my small oval Corning Ware glass 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 with homemade ice cream using the gooey sauce to spoon over all.

*Thank you,
