Tried for the first time this evening and was a huge success. I used dark brown soft sugar rather than caster sugar for a deeper taste (not that it was needed!). I also halved the ingredients as was only three of us, but this would easily have served five. Only small portions required as it's SO rich. I've got about a dozen chocolate cobbler recipes saved, but I think it'll be my Go To as I know it works. (Oh, and I used margarine rather than butter to reduce the calories a little!) Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe. - 21 Mar 2015
