Chocolate Cobbler

This dish is great as long as you have the ice cream with it, I feel like it would be slightly bland by itself.  It sure smells good though and looks absolutely beautiful. I would make this dish again for sure!

1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
7 tb cocoa powder (divided)
1 1/4 cups sugar (divided)
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 1/2 cup hot water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons of the cocoa, and 3/4 cup of the white sugar.
Reserve the remaining cocoa and sugar.
Stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla to the flour mixture.
Mix until smooth.
Pour the mixture into an ungreased 8-inch baking dish.
In a separate small bowl, mix the remaining white sugar (1/2 cup), the brown sugar, and remaining 4 tablespoons of cocoa.
Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter.
Pour the hot tap water over all.
Do not stir!
Bake for about 40 minutes or until the center is set.
Let stand for a few minutes.  (10 minutes is perfect)
Serve with homemade ice cream using the gooey sauce to spoon over all.
