    A very easy and rich chocolate cobbler, which is like a baked pudding. Wonderful with custard, cream or ice cream. If you double the ingredients, use a 20x30cm baking dish.

    just made this after looking for a quick easy recipe,,oh my so glad I found it,so easy to make with store cupboard ingrediants,looks weird when it goes in the oven but comes out like a soft squidgy brownie surrounded in a rich dark chocolate sauce,we had it with vanilla icecream,,we all loved it,,this recipe is a keeper for sure,many thanks for sharing,  -  17 Sep 2012


    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


    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.  -  02 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
