Buttermilk Lemon Cobbler!

When I posted the recipe for Chocolate Cobbler,   I had a reader write and ask me if I had a recipe for "Lemon Cobbler".   She said a local restaurant where she lived served it and it was to die for!   I didn't have a recipe, but it sounded like something wonderful, since I love lemon desserts.  This is what I came up with and it is downright yummy!   It's also easy as can be!  This definitely qualifies as an 'easy peasy' recipe!    Here is what you will need:

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon flavoring or 1 tsp. lemon zest
1  (21 oz.) can or jar of lemon pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Place the stick of butter in an 11"x 7" baking dish or a 2 quart casserole dish works also!   Place in the oven just to melt the butter. 

In a bowl, mix the self rising flour, sugar, buttermilk, vanilla, and lemon flavoring. 

If you do not have self rising flour, you can substitute all purpose flour, plus 1 tsp. baking powder,  and 1/2 tsp. salt. 

Pour the batter evenly over the butter in the baking dish.  DO NOT STIR!

Pour the lemon pie filling evenly over the batter.  DO NOT STIR!

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes to an hour!   It will be slightly brown on top!

This is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!   


  1. This will be good with Blue Bell's new Lemon ice cream, too.

  2. Kathy, when you say to use lemon filling are you referring to lemon curd?

    1. Lemon Pie Filling, it's usually in a can and with the other pie fillings, like apple, cherry, blueberry. You could use lemon curd, but you would probably need two jars.

  3. Do we melt the butter, or is it just pats of butter, that are placed evenly on the bottom of the pan?

    1. Place the stick of butter in the pan and place in the oven until it's melted. Coat the pan with it.
