How to make vegan Chocolate Cobbler

Preheat oven and make batter

Step 4: Rest the cobbler

Your cobbler is ready when the top is cakey, and the sauce is bubbling. Remove it from the oven and rest it for 10-15 minutes. Initially, the cobbler will be a bit jiggly but don’t worry – it will set as it rests.
