How about a decadent chocolate cobbler for two for Valentine's Day!
The recipe is easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already.
Since this dessert is for two, you would need a small dish like a vegetable bowl to bake it in. This cobbler is like a brownie that comes with its own chocolate sauce.
It is rich and mouthwatering and it is perfect for chocolate lovers, and it's Valentine's Day, so enjoy!
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder (optional)
4 tablespoons cocoa powder (divided use)
5 tablespoons milk
9 tablespoons sugar (divided use)
2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup hot water (microwaved)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a small ceramic dish that has a 1 1/2 cup capacity.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, espresso powder and 2 tablespoons of the cocoa powder. Stir in the milk, 5 tablespoons of sugar, butter, and vanilla. The batter will be very thick. Spread it in an even layer in the baking dish.
In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 4 tablespoons of sugar and brown sugar, Sprinkle this over the batter.
Pour the hot water on top of everything, but DO NOT STIR.
Bake the cobbler on a small sheet pan to catch any overflows for 35 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
