Strawberry Chocolate Cobbler

A simple baked dessert for early summer.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups whole grain pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the butter, cocoa, and ¼ cup of the sugar in a 3-quart glass baking dish.  Place in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes to melt the butter.  Remove from the oven and stir until well blended. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and the remaining ¾ cup of sugar.  Add the milk and stir until the mixture is smooth.  Spoon onto the melted butter mixture, but do not stir. Sprinkle with the strawberries.  Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
