2 sticks real butter (never use margarine)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup milk
For the Chocolate layer:
1 cup sugar
6 Tbsp cocoa
2 cups boiling water
oven to 350 degrees. In a 9 x 13 glass baking dish (or a corning ware
dish) melt the 2 sticks of butter in the oven. Meanwhile, in a bowl,
mix together the 1 1/4 cups sugar, flour, vanilla and milk. Once the
butter is melted, pour the batter over the butter, but DO NOT STIR.
a separate bowl, mix the cocoa and sugar together well and sprinkle on
top of the batter. Again DO NOT STIR. Pour the 2 cups of boiling water
on top of that and DO NOT STIR. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until
crust is golden brown.
Yield: 9 x 13 pan, serves 8 or more.
When you take cobbler out of oven it will be very bubbly hot...use caution
I like to immediately serve with a good vanilla ice cream.
