Chocolate Cobbler

For the past few days, I’ve been making all sorts of fruity desserts so today, it was time for chocolate.  When I saw this chocolate cobbler recipe on Pinterest, I was downright salivating.  With that said, the decision was made.

Chocolate Cobbler
(adapted from Tasty Kitchen)
Yields: 8 ramekins of cobbler

Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
7 tbsp cocoa powder, divided
1 and 1/4 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 and 1/2 cup hot water
ice cream of choice (optional)

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350.  Spray nonstick spray to 8 ramekins and set aside.  Combine flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of cocoa, and 3/4 cup white sugar and mix.  Reserve the remaining cocoa and sugar.  Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture and mix well.  Distribute the batter evenly into 8 ramekins.  In a separate small bowl, mix the remaining sugar (1/2 cup), the remaining cocoa powder (4 tablespoons), and the brown sugar.  Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter in the 8 ramekins.  Pour in 3 tablespoons of hot water on top of every single ramekin.  DO NOT STIR!  Bake for 40 minutes and let stand for a few minutes to cool down.  Top with ice cream of choice and serve.

My two cents:
This cobbler is similar in texture to a lava cake.  My only modification was that I put the batter into individual ramekins rather than an 8-inch baking pan.  I figure if this was going to be ooey and gooey like the picture depicted, then it might be easier to bake individual portions.  It was a successful dessert.  The ice cream went so well with it too.  After I finished mine, I wanted more!  I will most likely be making this dessert again sometime in the near future, that’s for sure.
