This decadent, delicious Bisquick Peach Cobbler is such a simple recipe. It has just 6 ingredients, and you might just have all of them in your kitchen!
- Bisquick – A classic baking mix that’s available in just about all American grocery stores. If it’s not available in your area, you can use another baking mix or make your own dry mix.
- Ground Nutmeg – This adds a beautiful, delicate spice that goes perfectly with peaches. You can also add other spices and flavorings here if you’d like! (See Tips & Recipe Notes)
- Milk – For this recipe, whole milk will give you the best results. You can also substitute any other kind of milk that you may have on hand!
- Butter – You want this to be melted and cooled. I prefer a good quality European butter for this, but as with the milk, you can use whatever you prefer/have on hand!
- Sugar – You can use white or brown sugar for this recipe, but I prefer brown sugar to give a rich, caramel flavor to the peaches.
- Canned, Sliced Peaches – This recipe calls for canned, sliced peaches and they should be drained thoroughly to prevent the cobbler from being soggy. You can use 1 29-ounce can of peaches or 2 15-ounce cans of peaches.
🔪 Step-By-Step Instructions
Making peach cobbler couldn’t be easier with this classic Bisquick recipe! Be sure to drain the peaches so they don’t make the cobbler watered-down.
- Prep. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Butter a baking dish (You can use an 8x8, 9x9, 9x13, or a cast iron skillet) and set aside.
- Make the batter. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk to combine 1 cup of Bisquick baking mix and ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg (or any other spices/flavorings). Then pour in 1 cup of milk and ½ cup of melted, cooled butter and stir to combine. Transfer the batter into your prepared baking dish.
- Add the peaches. Combine 29 ounces of drained, canned sliced peaches or fresh sliced peaches with 1 cup of sugar. Then gently pour over top of the batter. Do not stir.
- Bake. Bake the cobbler at 375°F (190°C) for 40 to 50 minutes until golden on top and an inserted toothpick comes out clean from the center. Try to check a baked section that doesn’t have a peach chunk in it when inserting your toothpick or cake tester.
- Serve! Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
This delectable Bisquick Peach Cobbler recipe needs ice cream, of course! Serve with an amazing vanilla ice cream (I like Häagen Dazs!) or a delicious sweetened whipped cream for the best smiles from those you love! Enjoy!
💭 Angela's Tips & Recipe Notes
Prefer a biscuit topping on your cobbler? You can still use Bisquick!
- Simply make the biscuit recipe on the back of the box. Then, either roll, cut, and place on top of peaches, or drop the biscuit dough onto the peaches. Bake as directed below!
This Bisquick Original recipe calls for just nutmeg, but you can use other spices and flavorings!
- Try using ¼ teaspoon each of cinnamon and nutmeg for a sweet, baking spice flavor
- You can also experiment with different baking spices you enjoy to make this cobbler taste exactly how you want it! Try apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice!
- I also add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the Bisquick batter for the best flavor!
If your top is golden brown, but the peaches still look runny or the inside of the dough is still raw, cover loosely with foil.
- A sheet of aluminum foil will keep the top of the cobbler from burning while it finishes cooking.
Butter the baking dish to ensure easy serving and clean-up!
- The original Bisquick recipe calls for an ungreased pan, but I always butter the pan. This not only adds extra buttery flavor, but it prevents peach juices and dough from crusting to the pan so serving and clean-up is a breeze!
🥡 Storing & Reheating
Leftover peach cobbler is even better the next day! Cover with plastic cling film or aluminum foil and keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 days. Any longer than that and it’ll start to get soggy, so eat it quickly!
You can freeze peach cobbler too! If you want to make this ahead of time to bring to a potluck, you can bake cobbler, allow it to cool completely on your counter, then wrap with a layer of plastic cling film and a layer of foil and it’ll keep for up to 1 month.
Reheating Peach Cobbler
If you’re reheating leftovers, you can simply bake in a 350°F (175°C) oven until warmed through again (about 20 minutes). You can also reheat servings in the microwave for about 1 minute or until fully warmed through.
When you reheat from frozen, warm the cobbler in a 350°F (175°C) until it's completely thawed and warmed to your satisfaction. *I suggest using a sheet of aluminum foil to cover the already browned peach cobbler.
Of course! If you’re still able to get some ripe, delicious fresh peaches, you can totally use them in this dish. Your fresh peaches can be blanched and peeled if desired, or leave the peel on. Slice your peaches into smaller pieces, then toss with the sugar and bake as directed.
If you’re not a fan of peaches, try this cobbler recipe with apples, berries like blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries, another stone fruit like nectarines or plums, or even a mix of fruits! This Bisquick cobbler recipe is well-suited for nearly any fruit!
While all these recipes are fruit layered on or under a topping, the main difference between a crisp and a cobbler is that a crisp is usually a streusel-like topping with oats and/or nuts, while a cobbler has a thicker biscuit, cake, or pie-dough topping. A crumble is like a crisp, but typically doesn’t have any oats mixed in.
