😋 What’s in Bisquick Peach Cobbler?
This quick peach cobbler recipe is made with the original Bisquick mix. Butter, sugar, milk, canned peaches, and ground cinnamon are just a few of the other ingredients. The canned peaches provide a sweet and juicy fruit filling that is perfectly complemented by the biscuit-like crust. After baking in the oven, the crunchy outside compliments the soft inside with every bite you take. There are many Bisquick recipes out there, but this one is definitely one of my favorites.
🍑 Key Ingredients
This recipe uses basic pantry ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of water – to mix with corn starch
- 2 cans of canned peaches – 15.25 ounces each (or fresh peaches)
- 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar – to mix with peaches
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon – to mix with peaches
The Bisquick Mixture
- 2 cups of original Bisquick baking mix
- 1 and 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup of unsalted butter – melted
- 2 cups milk (fat-free, 1%, 2%, or whole milk all work)
🥣 How to Make Classic Bisquick Peach Cobbler (Step-By-Step Instructions with Detailed Photos)
Step 1. Pre-heat Oven
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2. Combine the Corn Starch and Water
Then, in a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of corn starch with 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of water to create a corn starch paste. Set aside for now.
Step 3. Prepare the Peaches
We used canned sliced peaches, including all of the juice, for this recipe.
Put the 2 cans of peaches and juice in a saucepan on the stove. Then turn the burner to medium heat. We want to warm up the peach slices, not boil them. Usually, this step doesn’t take very long. Also, remember to stir the peaches as they start to warm up, so they won’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Step 4. Add the Cornstarch Mixture
After the peaches are warm, then reduce the heat to low. Slowly add the cornstarch mixture together with the peaches. Keep stirring. As a result, the cornstarch causes the liquid to slightly thicken in the peaches.
Step 5. Mix Sugar and Cinnamon with the Peaches
In a small bowl, add 2 tablespoons of sugar together with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Put about 3/4 of the sugar-cinnamon mixture in the peaches, then mix thoroughly.
Note: Save about 1 teaspoon of the sugar-cinnamon mixture to use on top of the cobbler mixture right before it goes into the oven, as mentioned below. Also, some peach cobbler recipes include nutmeg, so if you like nutmeg, you can add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg at this time.
In the meantime, keep stirring the peach mixture. As soon as you start to see that the peaches have thickened, turn the heat off and set the peaches aside.
Step 6. Melt the Butter
The next step is to melt 1/2 cup of butter in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl for about 30 seconds. Microwaves are not all the same. Your microwave may heat differently than mine, so make sure you keep checking the butter.
Step 7. Prepare the Bisquick Mix, then Combine with the Melted Butter
In a medium-sized bowl, add 2 cups of original Bisquick together with 1 ½ cups of granulated sugar. Then, add 2 cups of milk and the melted butter to the Bisquick. Mix thoroughly together with the Bisquick.
Note: For a sweeter cobbler, add an extra 1/2 cup of sugar (granulated).
Step 8. Spray a Baking Dish and Pour the Bisquick Mixture into the Dish
Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. We used a glass baking dish, but you can use any favorite baking dish or pan you have. Next, fill the baking dish with about 3/4 of the Bisquick mixture, but save a little to pour over the top after we add the peaches, as mentioned below.
Step 9. Spoon Peaches into the Bisquick Mixture
After that, pour all of the peaches with the thickened juice into the baking dish on top of the Bisquick mixture. You can use a spoon to drop it in evenly.
Step 10. Pour the Rest of the Bisquick Mixture Over the Peaches
Finish by drizzling the rest of the Bisquick mixture over the top of the peaches. Then, sprinkle the remaining 1 teaspoon of sugar-cinnamon mixture we saved earlier over the top of the cobbler mixture.
Step 11. Bake the Peach Cobbler
Place the baking dish in the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 48 minutes or until golden brown. Depending on how hot your oven gets, you can adjust the heat by reducing the temperature to 350 degrees, then check the cobbler after 40 minutes or so for doneness.
Peach cobbler is an American dessert with a peach filling and a biscuit crust on top. It was invented by American settlers when they didn’t have the means necessary to make a pie. They were able to make this cobbler over an open flame.
National Peach Cobbler Day is on April 13th. It falls on this day every year. This national day was created way back in the 1950s by the Georgia Peach Festival as a way to promote the sale of canned peaches.
You can store your peach cobbler on the kitchen countertop covered in an airtight container for a couple of days. However, it is best if stored in the refrigerator and also best if eaten within a couple of days. I don’t think we have ever had any left that needed to be stored longer than two days! 😉
💡 Final Thoughts for this Easy Bisquick Peach Cobbler
This is an easy peach cobbler recipe to follow, and it tastes so amazing. The warm cobbler top crust comes out of the oven crunchy, and the inside is oh-so moist, gooey, and delicious. We love a crunchy crust! A great thing about this recipe, and why we use canned peaches, is that you can always have all of the ingredients in your kitchen and then be able to make this warm classic dessert at any time of the year – even when it is not peach season! It is one of the best summer desserts, but we love this classic peach cobbler in the middle of the winter months just as much!
Peach cobbler tastes great right out of the oven, but it’s just a bit too hot. It’s best to let it cool for about 5 to 10 minutes if you can wait that long. We couldn’t! 😉
So, dish yourself a nice-sized portion of warm peach cobbler and top it off with a scoop of ice cream. For even more deliciousness, add a dollop of whipped cream placed right in the middle of it all. Enjoy!
