I didn't have self-rising flour, so I substituted with 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder. I didn't change anything else, and this dessert turned out very well. It is not too sweet or too decadent, but it satisfies a chocolate craving. I let it cool until it was just warm and the sauce was thickening, and then served it in bowls with scoops of vanilla ice cream. I will definitely make this again.


This tasted delicious and was quick to prepare. My husband said "Oh boy, is this good!" The sauce thickens as it cools. If you don't have self-rising flour, use 1 cup flour with 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt.


I've never heard of chocolate cobbler but I was in a last minute pinch for a dessert that was quick, easy and cheap. I skeptically threw this together with the following changes: made self rise flour with 1c. ap. flour, 1 1/2 tsp bkg pwdr, 1 tsp. salt. Used only 4 TBSP butter and about 1 1/4 C boiling water. Used heaping measurements for the Cocoa Powder. I also baked it in my 9x9 stoneware piece. This dessert completely exceeded my expectations. The cake-like part set up perfectly and the "sauce" was exactly like hot fudge - built right in there! I couldn't have been happier with the results and am thrilled to add this to my collection of sweet, simple - TOTALLY satisfying recipes. Anyone who's tried it with a result that didn't knock their socks off should try it again with some changes!
