Easy Lemon Cobbler Recipe

What You Need:

– A stick of butter (that’s ½ cup)
– Self-rising flour, 1 cup
– Granulated sugar, also 1 cup
– Buttermilk or regular whole milk, 1 cup
– A splash of pure vanilla extract (1 teaspoon)
– Lemon extract or some fresh lemon zest, 1 teaspoon
– Around 21 to 22 ounces of lemon pie filling

Let’s Get Baking:

1. Crank up your oven to 350°F to get things started.
2. Grab a 7×12-inch or a 9×9-inch baking pan and toss your stick of butter in it. Slide it into the oven to melt that butter down.
3. In a mixing bowl, give a quick whisk to your flour, sugar, buttermilk, vanilla, and that lemon zest or extract. Remember, we’re not going for perfection here, just mix until combined.
4. Now, pour your batter over the melted butter in your baking dish. But here’s the key: don’t stir it up.
5. Time for the lemon pie filling. Spoon or pour it over your batter, trying to keep it even. Again, no stirring – let’s keep those layers distinct.
6. Pop it into the oven, ideally on the middle rack, and bake for about 55 to 60 minutes. You’re looking for a golden brown crust on top. The middle might do a little dance (a bit jiggly), but as long as the crust is cooked and browned, you’re golden.
7. Best served warm, and oh, if you’ve got vanilla ice cream, it’s a match made in heaven.
8. Got leftovers? No problem. Cover them up and they’ll keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What size pan do I need?

Use a 9x9x3-inch square pan or a 9-inch round deep-dish pan. Make sure it’s 3 inches deep to avoid overflow. A 7×11.5 casserole dish works too, but a 9×13-inch pan is too big.

Can I make this in a slow cooker?

Yes, you can. It’s easy but takes more time. (Details are below.)

Is this the same as Magic Lemon Cobbler?

Yes, it’s also called Magic Lemon Cobbler or Easy Magic Lemon Cobbler. It’s known for being super easy and making its own sauce.

How is a cobbler different from a pie?

They’re similar but not the same. Pies usually have a bottom crust and sometimes a top crust. Cobblers don’t have a bottom crust. Pies use pastry dough, while cobblers have a sweet, biscuit-like or cake-like dough.
