How to Make Chocolate Cobbler

Making Southern chocolate cobbler is super easy – there's little prep involved, and before you know it, you'll have a gorgeous, rich chocolatey dessert to dig your spoon into. Start by heating your oven to 350F.

Melt the butter in your baking dish, then set it aside. Mix the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, milk, and vanilla in a bowl. Scoop the mixture into the baking dish, without stirring.

In a second bowl, combine the sugar and cocoa powder. Dust the batter with the cocoa-sugar mixture. Pour the boiling water over the topping without stirring. Bake the cobbler for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the cocoa topping sets.

Take the cobbler out of the oven and place the baking dish on a wire rack to cool for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream, and enjoy!

Tips for Making Easy Chocolate Cobbler

Don't stir the batter or the topping when making your cobbler.

Use high-quality cocoa powder to make your chocolate cobbler.

For a richer vanilla flavor, substitute the vanilla extract for vanilla bean or vanilla bean paste.

You don't need to use a baking dish to make your Southern chocolate cobbler. A cast-iron skillet works perfectly. You can even make your chocolate cobbler in a mug using your microwave. Microwave the cobbler in mugs for 2 minutes 30 to 3 minutes.

Serve your chocolate cobbler with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream for an ultra-decadent treat.

Add other flavorings like peanut butter, almond butter, mint extract, or orange extract to put a tasty twist on this recipe.

For a richer chocolate taste, add a dash of coffee or espresso to the batter.
