Lazy Gluten Free: Gluten Free Chocolate Cobbler

Gluten Free Chocolate Cobbler

This amazing gluten free chocolate cobbler is any chocolate lover's dream. It's moist, gooey, chocolatey, and very delicious!  It had occurred to me that I haven't posted a dessert in quite some time (sorry!), so I am making it up to you with this super delicious chocolate cobbler. Serve it warm with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream, and you will have yourself a very decadent dessert.

Although this recipe has a few more ingredients than the Lazy Girl prefers, it really was not hard to make. And it's virtually fool-proof since it only involves mixing the ingredients and layering them. I was impressed at how moist it turned out since most GF baked goods are pretty crumbly or dry. I will definitely be making this again.

I promise I'll do better about making desserts more often. I know my husband won't complain about that... :)

Gluten Free Chocolate Cobbler

You will need:
1 cup King Arthur Multi-Purpose Gluten Free Flour
1 teaspoon Xanthan Gum (optional, but helpful for crumblyness)
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
7 tablespoons cocoa powder, divided
1-1/4 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1-1/2 teaspoon McCormick vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1-1/2 cup HOT tap water

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 8 inch by 8 inch baking dish.

1) In a large bowl combine the flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, 3/4 cup of the sugar, and 3 tablespoons of the cocoa powder. 

2) Mix in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir until mixture is smooth. It will resemble brownie batter. Spread this mixture evenly in the greased baking dish. 

3) In a separate medium sized bowl combine the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, 4 tablespoons cocoa powder, and brown sugar. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter in the baking dish.

4) Pour the hot tap water over the entire dish. Do not stir! 

5) Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the center is set.

Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and spoon the gooey sauce on top.
