Comforted

I really enjoyed the blueberry pie challenge of last week, and it was appreciated very much by my people. But this week I wanted something simpler and more comforting: Chocolate Cobbler! Easy to make and very easy to eat…maybe a bit too easy, but chocolate tends to be like that. It was a bright spot on a gloomy afternoon. How are you holding up with the “safer at home” experience? We are finding it difficult some days and more easy on other days, probably like most everyone. I would like to be able to say I will never complain about the grocery store, gym or work again. Hopefully I will say that, but time will tell.

Usual Cast of Characters

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole milk or cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Chocolate Cobbler Topping:

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1cups boiling water

Steps to Glory

  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • Place butter into a 9×13 baking dish and into the oven to melt. Then, remove from the oven and set aside.
  • Mix together the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, milk, and vanilla extract, baking powder and salt for the batter. Spoon the mixture into the baking dish on top of the melted butter. DO NOT STIR.
  • In a separated bowl, mix 2 cups sugar and ½ cup cocoa powder. Sprinkle this topping mixture on top of the batter. Pour the boiling water over topping. DO NOT STIR.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until top is set. The bottom of the cobbler will still be a little loose. Cool for 15 to 20 minutes.

The day may be dreary but you can always find some joy in it!

  1. Wish I had the energy of the little one jumping, lol. I’m not a baker, but must say I LOVE how pretty your pie pan is. Popped in from the Monday linky party. It’s always fun to meet new bloggers.

  2. Oh my that does look delicious and comforting. I am finding that chocolate is definitely a coping mechanism for me. 🙂 My family is loving it that I am baking up so many yummy treats; my clothes not so much. Pinned.

  4. This post really resonated with me, Amy. It’s lovely to know I am not alone in my feelings of being absolutely fine one day, and not very good at all the next. And I agree, I will never complain about a lot of things ever again. How blessed we are – but how blessed we were, and even though I kept a gratitude journal I didn’t understand half of it! Thank you for sharing this lovely post, and delicious, comforting chocolate cobbler with the Hearth and Soul Link party. I’m featuring it at the party later today. Take care and stay well.
