15 Best Lemon Cobbler Recipes To Try Today

After all, you could use as much flavoring and sweeteners as you like, but you might be looking for a natural flavor that isn’t too difficult to make and mix.

If only there were a recipe that you could modify slightly and have the approval of your family and friends while being a familiar dessert that everyone can get on board with.

We introduce the best lemon cobbler recipes that range in flavor, cooking process, and even some variety for you to experiment with. 

1. Lemon Dump Cake

We start with the classic dessert because this is without question one of the most decadent desserts you can make, with a nice golden brown cake mixture with the nice lemon zest filling that is sure to hit the sweet spot.

 You can serve this up with ice cream or even custard, and you’ll find this complements the dessert in the summer and fall months, you can use canned filling if you’re short on time, and it will work just as well. 

2. Lemon Berry Cobbler

This is your classic cobbler with a bit of a twist, as most of your guests are going to identify at least one kind of berry that they adore, so you can use fresh or frozen berry mixes and combine this with the lemon to create a one of a kind type of dessert. 

Use some cornstarch to ensure your mixture isn’t too runny, and you can use some of the drizzle from your berries as a nice cake topping, which is going to make it even more irresistible. 

3. Lemon Lovers Fresh Cobbler

This cobbler is reserved for those who want lemon as an exclusive ingredient, and this works simply with some sugar and butter that you can cool in the fridge, and what you’re left with is something wonderful that doesn’t go too far from the original recipe.

Be aware that this recipe will be pretty sour, so you may want to serve some ice cream on the side to improve the flavor.  

4. Home Made lemon Cobbler

We have a cobbler recipe that looks and tastes homemade, just when you thought this classic recipe couldn’t get any better, you can make the pie filling yourself by using this recipe, which is very easy to make and store while you make the rest of your cobbler.

Once it’s all baked, you’ll have a lovely dessert that is nice and brown on the sides and is very reminiscent of the taste of home, a nice get-together dessert. 

5. Easy Lemon Cobbler

This recipe can take you less than an hour, and we get that people can have very demanding schedules, so this one’s for you.

You can simply prepare your baking dish with the butter pieces, pour the batter and then spoon the lemon pie filling on top, where you can bake for 55-60 minutes, and during this time, you can get other important things done while you wait.

6. Lemon Pudding Cobbler

We’re putting the pudding back into the equation by adding it to this classic recipe but using jello pudding mix, which is going to leave you with a nice gooey lemon filling, and you can drizzle some lemon juice or any remaining jello mix onto the top for a lovely finish. 

You can serve this with some cool whip which will make that even more creamy, and you can have this one prepared in under an hour.  

7. Strawberry Lemonade Cobbler

We begin this part of the list with some obscure but still delicious mixes you can get with the classic lemon cobbler blend, and this one uses fresh strawberries combined with some lemon concentrate, and you have a sweet dessert on your hands.

You can use some whipped topping with lemon curd to ensure you still retain that lemon essence, and you can make this one in layers so you can appreciate the individual flavors even better.

8. Bisquick Cobbler

Another easy-to-make dessert that uses a butternut biscuit mix or alternative pancake and baking mix, and what’s even better is that the recipe is very adaptable so that you can add more or less baking mixture and even some vanilla and cinnamon if you want.

As long as you have your four ingredients and have an hour to kill, you can very much make this recipe for dinner or for a future meal plan, and it can still hold its texture and rich flavor, whatever you decide to fill it with. 

9. Pumpkin Cobbler

This is the perfect dessert recipe for thanksgiving and can be a great alternative to pumpkin pie if you’re tired of the same recipe every year, so you get a chance here to stretch your creative cooking side where you can decide if you’re going to use some cinnamon to spice things up a bit.

You can even add chopped walnuts to this recipe in case you want some texture to your cobbler in place of the shortcrust pastry case, but the nice crumbly cake mix, which you can make as smooth as you like, and add some ice cream of whipped cream for a nice side.

10. Strawberry Dump Cobbler

Another recipe that is so easy that you might wonder why you haven’t considered making this before, as you only need some whole strawberries and juice, yellow cake mix, and cup butter, and you can dump all of these into a pan, and you’re ready to go. 

This differs from the strawberry lemonade cobbler in the fact that the end result resembles that of a crumble that you might associate with apples, but it has the same rich taste and is great for those who want to keep the zest on the low down. 

11. Blueberry Lemon Cobbler

We have a cobbler that uses lemon juice, blueberries, sugar, butter, milk, and lemon cake mix, and this can be a great way to get the whole family to incorporate more delicious fruits into their diets, and it won’t be difficult once they’ve seen the result.

What’s even better is that you can freeze this for up to 2 months, so you can wait for it to cool completely, then cover it with a few layers of foil, then put it into the freezer for another occasion. 

12. Chocolate Cobbler

This chocolate cobbler has a buttery and tender crust with a chocolate filling that oozes and melts perfectly as you taste it, so this one can very well become a firm favorite in your household. 

This dessert would work very nicely with some vanilla ice cream, and you could even add a caramel drizzle on the top if you want a richer consistency overall. 

13. Peach Cobbler

Something a bit different that is great for those peach lovers out there who enjoy a crispy top with that classic cobbler taste and has a creamy filling that is going to catch anyone by surprise. 

It’s even better if your peaches are drained, but then you add the syrup to your corn starch which will blend well into the cake mixture and gives you a nice balance once you’ve also mixed in the peach drink and vanilla extract. 

14. Fruit Cobbler

This is for those who want a bit of everything in their cobbler, whether it be apples, cherries, or any type of fruit, or you could balance it out a bit and add a bit of each, as long as your cobbler doesn’t become too sweet, as you’re going to be adding sugar to the mix as well. 

This recipe can take just over an hour to fully make and serve, but it will be worth it when you see that irresistible golden brown cake mixture.  

15. Lemon Cake

Seeing as we’re mentioning lemon desserts, you could squeeze in this lemon cake recipe, which might go against the cobbler recipe, but you’ll find that this recipe shares some of the same ingredients as the classic cobbler.

You simply need self-raising flour, baking powder, some medium eggs, butter, caster sugar, lemon zest, and some milk, so if you have some ingredients left over from your cobbler, this recipe is definitely worth a try.

The Bottom Line

You can see from these options that there is a lot you can do with a cobbler recipe, and you can adjust the recipe if you find you want more or less zest, and even if you decide to use more neutral or fresh ingredients, which can give it a nice tart-like taste to it.
