Ultimate Chocolate Cobbler, Millie's

Millie Johnson


I had never heard of a chocolate cobbler till I found JAP. I fell in love ! I have tweaked this recipe till it became, in my opinion, THE ultimate chocolate cobbler. My hubby loves it and I'm sure your chocoholics will too ! Great with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream.

How to Make Ultimate Chocolate Cobbler, Millie's


  1. Preheat over to 350*F
    Slice stick of butter into about 6 slices and put in 9x13 baking pan (I used a glass pan) and put in oven to melt.
  2. You will need two (2) bowls, a medium and a large.
    The batter will go in the large bowl. To each bowl add the dry ingredients and mix well to remove lumps. (make sure to fluff your flour BEFORE you measure it) Now set aside the medium bowl with the topping mix in it.
    Put water on to boil. To batter bowl, add in buttermilk, walnuts and vanilla extract and hand mix well. If it is too thick add more buttermilk. You want a thicker pancake batter consistency .
    NOTE: You can use milk but you must reduce amount to about one (1) cup.
  4. When butter is melted, remove pan from oven. Now carefully pour the batter into pan. I will pour in the middle then around the edges. DO NOT STIR !!!
  5. Now spoon topping mix evenly over the batter. Try to work quickly here.
  6. Carefully and slowly pour the boiling water over the top.
  7. Bake 15 minutes then add * pecans(optional) and return to oven and bake 12 - 15 more minutes. Let sit for at least 20-30 minutes before serving. Great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream !
