  1. Hi – This cobbler looks delicious! I’ll be making it tomorrow. I’m considering replacing half the white sugar with brown. Do you think it will come out OK or should I just stick with the white? Thank you!!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I would think that would work fine. Thanks!

  2. I had my doubts! I’ve never poured boiling water over anything I was going to bake! It came out of the oven yummy and gooey! Fantastic! I’ll be saving this recipe. Thank you!5 stars

  3. I’ve never made a hot water cobbler. This was my first and it’s delicious! I remember my grandmother making a chocolate one when I was little. Thanks for the recipe!5 stars

  4. How do I know when it is done? I’ve added ten minutes and it still looks watery on top.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can see the consistency of the cobbler by looking at the photos on this post. It certainly shouldn’t be watery. If it is, then it needs to bake longer. All oven temps vary. When baking anything you may need to shorten or lengthen the baking time depending on your oven and your location (altitude).Hope that helps!

  5. Looks delicious!! I have not ever poured hot water over batter. Did I read that correctly? Thanks.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, you read it correctly.

  6. This is a fantastic recipe. I’ve made this cobbler twice and it always receives great comments.5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can definitely try it, but you will have to add baking powder and salt, since that is already in self rising flour. I have never tried it with all purpose flour so I can’t really advise.

      1. How much salt and baking powder would you add to the flour?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I’ve only made this cobbler from scratch, so I can’t advise. Thanks!

  7. Made this over Memorial Day weekend. Oh my! This dessert is DEFINITELY a keeper. Delicious!5 stars
