  • Cooking method: Baking
  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 40 minutes
  • Cuisine type: American


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ cups boiling water

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8-inch (20 cm) baking dish. Go ahead, pick your favorite one!
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. No lumps left behind!
  3. Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour this yummy batter into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Sprinkle the brown sugar and ¼ cup cocoa powder evenly over the batter. Be generous; they’ll repay you with flavor!
  5. Carefully pour the boiling water over the entire mixture. No mixing needed! You’ve got this!
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes or until the top is set but still jiggly in the center. An ol’ gooey delight!
  7. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Resist the urge to dive in right away!


  • Alternative ingredients: Swap out the unsweetened cocoa powder with dark cocoa powder for a richer flavor.
  • Garnishing options: Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle with shaved chocolate if you’re feeling fancy.
  • Cooking tips: For an extra burst of flavor, add a dash of instant coffee granules to the batter. It’s a mocha surprise!
  • Storage: If any cobbler is left—highly unlikely—store it covered in the refrigerator for up to three days. Pop in the microwave for a warm treat.
