This Is Why I Needed Self Rising Flour!

Have you ever heard of Chocolate Cobbler? I haven't! But my oh my...it is so easy and so delectable. You melt 2 sticks of butter in the bottom of a 9"X 13" cake dish.
In a separate bowl mix 1 1/2 cups self rising flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar, vanilla and milk. Mix this and pour it over the melted butter. Do not stir this into the melted butter.
In another bowl mix together sugar and cocoa powder.
Sprinkle this over the previous 2 layers. Do not stir it in.
Pour 2 cups of boiling water over all of the layers. Do not stir them. Pop the whole thing into the oven.

I was surprised to find the chocolate a little runny in the bottom of the pan when it finished baking, but as it started to cool, the chocolate turned into a perfect perfect perfect chocolate sauce!

This is so good it may make you want to do something crazy. I'm getting it ready for the hungry teens when they are ready for dessert after lunch. Yikes...I hope it doesn't make them want to do something crazy ;)!

This is in the oven baking right now, so if you want to see some wonderful photos of the finished dessert, just pop right over to Cherry Hill Cottage. (You'll have to scroll down to June 9th. I couldn't get the actual link for that specific posting to transfer over.) I got this delightful recipe there!

Chocolate Cobbler~
Melt 2 sticks of butter in a 9x13 dish
Mix together in a bowl;
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup self rising flour
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup of milk plus a smidgen
Pour this over the melted butter; DO NOT STIR, just drizzle the above over the butter.
In another bowl mix;
1 cup sugar
5 tbsp cocoa now sprinkle this over the above mixture, again, DO NOT MIX into the ingredients already in the dish, just sprinkle.
Now add 2 cups of boiling water over the top of all of the above, DO NOT MIX, just pour over.
Bake at 350 uncovered for 35-45 minutes.

I promise, this is so good, you'll think you will want to eat the whole pan of it...but a small serving fills you up really quickly. Oh, don't forget the vanilla ice cream!
So that my chocolatey warm saucy lovin' friends, is why I needed self rising flour! That recipe is on the posting below!
Happy eating!
Love, Rachel
P.S. Hattie, I'm still trying to find you for the give away!

Rachel - this looks YUM! I would have to plan this dessert when we have company, though, because I couldn't leave my husband alone in the same room with this - definitely NOT a good idea!

I chanced upon your site after "Romantic Porch" caught my eye!

My family lives in our 100+ farmhouse that my dad was born in, I grew up in, and my great-gramps refurbished in early 1900. On our century farm, it sports a pretty neat porch. here is a link to it (I hope!): http://www.livingthecountrylife.com/country-homes/beautiful/beautiful-places-photos-v/?page=3

Chocolate cobbler?!?! How can it be that a chocolate fiend such as myself could have missed the existence of this dessert. It is being copied for my files and will be the next dessert to be made in my kitchen.
