Chocolate Cobbler in the Slow Cooker

I found that this is a good recipe to let the kids help out with. I let each of the boys stir one of the bowls of dry ingredients while I melted the butter and boiled the water. Easy, easy, and so delicious. (FWIW, this recipe is very similar tastewise to this one.)

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons cocoa, divided
  • 1 1/4 cup white sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Spray the inside of the slow cooker crock with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons cocoa, and 3/4 cup white sugar.
  3. Stir milk, melted butter, and vanilla into the flour mixture until smooth. Pour into the greased crock.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the rest of the white sugar (1/2 cup), brown sugar, and cocoa (4 tablespoons). Sprinkle over the top of the batter in the crock.
  5. Pour hot water over the top of ingredients in the slow cooker. Do not stir.
  6. Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 3–4 hours. Remove the lid and let stand for several minutes before serving. At first, it will be a bit too liquidy, but it should thicken up after several minutes.
