Ever wanted to learn how to make Cobbler Using Bisquick? Bisquick is one of my favorite ingredients for cobbler. Sometimes, I’ll even use it as a stand in for the more commonly used biscuit mix. Other times, I’ll go all out and use both biscuit mix and Bisquick to make sure every bite of cobbler is packed with flavor.
BISQUICK PEACH COBBLER
Easy Bisquick Peach Cobbler a summertime favorite and one of our most popular desserts! It’s the perfect ending to any meal.
COBBLER VS CRISP VS CRUMBLE
When summertime yields fresh peaches, there’s no better time to make Easy Peach Cobbler and Peach Crisp! Not sure what the difference is between them? Let me tell you!
Crisps have a streusel crumble on top of a fruity base. If the streusel contains oats, then it is called a crisp. No oats, and you call it a crumble.
Cobblers, on the other hand have a biscuit topping. Many times the biscuit mix raises up from the bottom and engulfs the fruit. Other times precut biscuits are placed on top of the fruit and then baked.
The version I’m sharing with you today, Bisquick Peach Cobbler, is an ultra-simple version of the classic summertime treat, and it’s SO tasty! Serve it up with some whipped cream or some vanilla ice cream for extra goodness.
HOW TO MAKE PEACH COBBLER WITH BISQUICK
PREP. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
BISQUICK MIXTURE. In a medium bowl, whisk together the bisquick (or other biscuit mix of choice), milk, sugar, cinnamon and baking powder. Add the melted butter and mix until just combined.
PEACHES. Pour bisquick mixture into a greased 9 x 9 baking dish. Spoon drained peaches into the mixture (do not mix).
BAKE. Bake for 44-48 minutes or until golden brown.
Top it: You almost can’t have a cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream on top.
Switch the Spice: You can easily replace the cinnamon with a similar favorite spice such as 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, or allspice or a pumpkin pie spice.
Pair with some berries: Replace some of the peaches with an equal amount of other fruits such as blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, blackberries. Be sure to toss the fresh fruit in sugar before combining with the peaches.
Make your own baking mix: You can easily make your own Bisquick using 4 common ingredients: all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and butter
- Mix 1 cup flour, 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder, ¼ teaspoon salt in a mixing bowl.
- Add 1 tablespoon of butter and cut it into the flour using a pastry cutter.
- Substitute this mixture with the 1 cup of baking mix in the recipe.
Be sure that all the peach slices are the same size so they cook at the same rate. Sometimes I’ll take the extra time to cut the canned peach slices in half for more bite sized pieces.
If you coat the peaches with 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch, then any liquids that are produced during the baking will bubble into a nice sauce. This is particularly helpful if you use fresh peaches.
Use Fresh peaches. I like to use canned peaches, because it saves me so much time by not having to do any slicing and the recipe still turns out really yummy. If you prefer to use fresh peaches you absolutely can. You can also use frozen peach slices, just thaw them first.
- Take 2 cups of freshly sliced peaches (about 4-5 peaches, peeled, cored and sliced), ¾ cup of sugar, and dash of salt, and bring to a boil over high heat. Pour over batter in the 9×9 pan. Do not mix! The rest of the recipe remains exactly the same.
TIPS AND TROUBLESHOOTING
It can be difficult to determine why a certain recipe doesn’t turn out for people. Even the smallest adjustment could affect the result. In an effort to help you get the perfect cobbler the first time I’ve compiled a few notes for you to keep in mind.
Liquid. The biscuit mix should absorb a lot of the liquid and come out soft and warm, but not mushy. Runny cobbler could be due to not draining your canned peaches all the way or at all. I like to pour the peaches in a colander or mesh strainer and let them drain while I prepare all the other ingredients.
Check for doneness. Determining when the cobbler is done can be a bit tricky. The biscuit will topping will be a nice golden brown and any peach filling will be bubbly. Keep in mind that we baked our cobbler in a ceramic dish, If you use a metal pan, then it may bake more quickly.
MAKING AHEAD & STORING
Make ahead and store it in the freezer: After baking let the cobbler cool and cover with plastic wrap then again with aluminum foil. Label the contents and include the current date. Freeze for 6-8 months.
To reheat from frozen, thaw overnight in the fridge. Remove plastic wrap, replace foil and bake in a preheated oven to 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
Leftover peach cobbler can be STORED, covered, at room temperature for 1-2 days. It will last for 3-4 days when stored in the refrigerator.
You can easily each chilled cobbler, but we love having warm peach cobbler. To REHEAT the cobbler, use the microwave and reheat in 30 second increments. If you want to reheat in the oven, just bake at 350F for 10 minutes, if at room temperature, and about 20 minutes, if the cobbler was chilled.
Bisquick Peach Cobbler
This BISQUICK PEACH COBBLER is a quick way to get dessert on the table. You can use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches in this dessert. Top it off with vanilla ice cream and dessert is served!
I’ve always loved fresh peaches. There is nothing more summer-y to me than walking into a farmer’s market and getting a giant whiff of peaches.
If you can smell them before you can see them, you know the peaches are total perfection.
I’m happy to eat them as they are, with the sticky sweet juice running right down my arms, but sometimes I like to turn fresh peaches into cobbler.
How to make this Bisquick peach cobbler recipe:
To start, you’ll want to whip up the cobbler portion of this recipe.
For the peach cobbler filling, you’ll want 2 pounds of sliced peaches – fresh or frozen are fine, but if peaches are in season, fresh will be tastier!
Add a little brown sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch to your peaches and give them a good stir.
It’s impossible for me to resist eating at least one peach slice before it goes in the oven, but the problem is that once I eat one, I want to eat two. Once I eat two, I want to eat three. You can see how this might get dangerous. 😉
Pour your peaches into the baking dish with your Bisquick mixture and pop the whole thing in the oven.
This will bake up in about an hour.
We like to serve our Bisquick peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream. A little whipped cream would be nice instead, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Enjoy peach cobbler anytime with this easy peach cobbler recipe using canned peaches! This warm and bubbly dessert tastes amazing fresh from the oven and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Make this lazy man’s peach cobbler even easier by using Original Bisquick Baking Mix but it is not required.
While I love to bake, I can appreciate a quick and easy recipe that I can make for my family with just a few basic ingredients. Much like a dump cake, this peach cobbler takes only a few minutes to put together using basic pantry ingredients and some canned peaches.
PEACH COBBLER INGREDIENTS
Only a few basic ingredients are required to make this lazy man’s peach cobbler. I am not the original creator of this recipe, however I have tweaked it for my family’s tastes.
- Original Bisquick Baking Mix
- canned sliced peaches
- vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (optional)
This recipe uses half the sugar of standard Bisquick peach cobbler. Trust me, if you are using canned peaches you do not need any more than a half a cup of sugar. It is plenty sweet enough, especially if you are serving with ice cream. If you are using fresh or frozen peaches, you may want to add additional sugar if desired. I have not tested this recipe with any peaches other than canned.
BISQUICK SUBSTITUTE IN PEACH COBBLER
No Bisquick? No problem! You can still make this easy peach cobbler. Simply replace the Bisquick in this recipe with the following ingredients:
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
HOW TO MAKE EASY PEACH COBBLER
To make this quick peach cobbler recipe, you’ll want to start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In an 8 inch square baking dish, mix together Bisquick, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk with a small whisk or fork. Yes, you read that correctly! Mix it up right in your baking pan for minimal cleanup!
Add in butter and vanilla and gently mix until fully combined. In medium bowl stir together peaches and sugar.
Spoon peaches over batter evenly. (I do not use a slotted spoon for this step because I want all the sugar to end up on top as well to get that slighty crunchy top.)
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
My whole family really enjoys this easy dessert. We just love the crunchy baked topping and the way the vanilla ice cream melts on the warm cobbler.
CAN YOU USE FRESH PEACHES IN THIS PEACH COBBLER?
Yes! Give it a try with frozen or fresh peaches. I haven’t tried that myself because I’m going for ultra easy by having peach cobbler with canned peaches. But you can substitute 3 to 4 cups of sliced fresh or frozen peaches for the canned peaches. Drain any liquid from the thawed peaches.
