Chocolate Cobbler for Two in a dish with ice cream and chocolate drizzled on top

Remember the “mug cake” craze? I guess it really hasn’t gone anywhere…and for good reason. Everyone needs a little something sweet from time to time and a small, microwavable portion size is always a bonus!

Chocolate Cobbler has always been a huge hit with family, friends and followers of Dance Around the Kitchen. One night, I was craving some Chocolate Cobbler, but didn’t need a huge pan of it (just needed to satisfy that pregnancy craving, ha!!). Therefore, I did a little experimenting and decided sharing this small batch recipe was a must! I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!

How do you make Chocolate Cobbler for Two?

For real, it’s easy. There are just a couple important steps that you’ll want to pay close attention to.

First, you’ll make a simple batter right in the dish you’ll cook it in (I love having few dishes!).

Next, you’ll mix a few dry ingredients and sprinkle it on top; do NOT stir.

Lastly, you’ll pour boiling water over the top and put it right in the oven. It’s super important that you do NOT stir after pouring the water on top. I know, it seems odd, but it works!

You can either microwave on HIGH for 2 1/2 – 3 minutes OR bake for 15 minutes at 350F and enjoy warm!

  • Sprinkle the topping mixture over the batter; do NOT stir.

*If you’ve made my Chocolate Cobbler, please know that this will be a slightly different texture due to the fact that it’s cooked in the microwave.  Portions of the cake will rise to the top, but some fudge will set on top.  (I actually really liked the extra fudgy texture of the microwave version!!)
