  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup milk (whole or buttermilk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon lemon essence (optional, for extra lemon flavor)
  • 21 ounces lemon curd or pie filling


Step 1: Preheat and Prepare

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Melt the Butter: Place the butter in a 9×13 inch baking dish and put it in the preheated oven until the butter is melted, about 5-7 minutes. Once melted, remove the dish from the oven.

Step 2: Mix the Batter

  1. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and granulated sugar until well combined.
  2. Add Wet Ingredients: Pour in the milk, vanilla essence, and lemon essence (if using). Stir until the batter is smooth and well combined.

Step 3: Assemble the Cobbler

  1. Pour the Batter: Pour the batter over the melted butter in the baking dish. Do not stir; the batter will spread out on its own.
  2. Add Lemon Curd: Spoon the lemon curd or pie filling evenly over the batter. The curd will sink slightly as the cobbler bakes, creating a delicious layer.

Step 4: Bake

  1. Bake the Cobbler: Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the cobbler is set.
  2. Cool: Allow the cobbler to cool slightly before serving to let the flavors meld together.

Step 5: Serve

  1. Serve: Serve the cobbler warm, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra treat.
  2. Enjoy: Enjoy the delightful combination of the sweet, tangy lemon filling with the buttery, tender cobbler topping.

Cooking Notes and Variations

Tips for Success

  • Butter: Ensure the butter is fully melted before adding the batter to create a crisp, buttery crust.
  • Batter: Do not stir the batter and melted butter together; this helps create distinct layers in the cobbler.
  • Lemon Essence: For an extra lemony flavor, add the lemon essence, but it’s optional.


  • Fruit Variations: Substitute the lemon curd with other fruit fillings like blueberry, cherry, or peach for a different flavor profile.
  • Citrus Twist: Add the zest of one lemon to the batter for an additional burst of citrus flavor.
  • Topping: Sprinkle some coarse sugar on top before baking for a crunchy, sweet topping.
