Chocolate Cobbler

For the cobbler:

6 tbsp. butter
1 cup self rising flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. instant coffee
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Put 6 tbsp. butter in an 8×8 baking dish and allow to melt in the oven.

Mix together dry ingredients. Pour in milk and vanilla.

When butter has melted, pour the chocolate mixture on top of the butter. Try to pour it as evenly across the dish as you can, because you won’t be able to spread it once it’s in the dish.

For the topping:

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups hot water

Mix together the dry ingredients. Sprinkle over the top of the chocolate cobbler.

Slowly, slowly, slowly pour the hot water over the entire thing.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until the top has hardened up, but the cobbler is still a bit jiggly in the middle.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
