Peach Cobbler Recipe
(scroll to bottom of post for printable recipe page) 

Ingredients

2 cups fresh sliced peaches (or one 29 ounce can of sliced peaches in natural juice, drained)
1 cup Bisquick All Purpose Mix
1 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup of sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

In an 8 x 8 baking dish, stir Bisquick mix, milk, nutmeg and cinnamon together until thoroughly mixed.  Stir in melted butter.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir sugar and peaches.  Spoon peaches over the cobbler crust.  NOTE: Adding sugar to the peaches is optional.  If your peaches are over-ripe, they may already be super sweet or if you choose to use peaches canned in heavy syrup, they will already be sweet enough.  Or perhaps you are minimizing sugar in your recipes. In these situations, feel free to omit the sugar.

Bake for one hour or until crust is a golden brown.  Serve warm and enjoy!

Tip:  Cobbler is terrific when served hot with vanilla ice cream and may be enjoyed cold, too.

  1. This is very similar to the recipe my grandmother taught me. I make this for my husband and 4 kids all the time. I use the flour and baking powder together instead of bisquick. I melt the butter in the pan first. Then in a med. Bowl I add the dry ingredients and whisk to make sure it’s evenly destibuted. Then I add in the milk. Pour into the pan with the butter. Then I spoon the peaches evenly into the pan. Then bake!! So easy and the family loves it.

    • Not sure as I haven’t baked it that way and I’m not sure how much liquid you’ve added by not draining them. But by best guess, not draining the peaches will likely extend the baking time and may make the cobbler a little more soft in consistency, not as cake-like.

  2. Add the milk in the first step after setting the oven temperature… “In an 8 x 8 baking dish, stir Bisquick mix, milk, nutmeg and cinnamon together until thoroughly mixed.”

    And enjoy!

  3. Cat Voci, attempted to email a reply to your question, but there wasn’t any attached to your profile.

    In answer: There is an alternative method to making which is using cold butter, cutting it into the crust, spreading across the bottom (thereby, not patting down) then adding the milk.

    I opted to include the easy instructions instead, which, in my opinion, yields a better and more consistent result anyhow.

    Hope that helps!

  4. Has anyone tried this with cherries or other fruits such as blackberries, boysenberries, blueberries or apples? I wonder how strawberry/ ruhbarb would be also, may have to do some test recipiesn

  5. I’m sorry to say,,,I cant figure out how to print out this Peach Cobbler??
    I dont see well so that could be the reason,,NEED help,, THANK You
    Barbara 🙂

  6. I’ve used the same recipe with plums, cherries and mixed berries… always turns out fabulous. Imagine that blueberries and strawberry ruhbarb will work well, too. You’ll have to let us know if you experiment and how it turns out!

    Barbara Heald- depending upon your software and browser, you should find a “print” option in the top menu bar to print the page. Otherwise, you can also email the page to yourself using the “M” button under the last picture in the post. Then you can select the text that you wish to print or print the email. Alternatively, highlight and “copy” the text you want, then “paste” it to a notepad or word processor to print. Hope that helps!

    If you are using canned peaches, I prefer to use unsweetened (or in natural juice,) but you may choose to use sweetened, too. The result will be sweeter, but it will depend upon your taste preference.

    Enjoy all!

  7. Barbara Heald- an easy way to print is to right click on the mouse,select print and click on it. It will open the printer window on your screen and you can print from there.

  8. I am not a cook, but I want to try this, can you please tell me how do you get the crust on top….I guess I should be embarrassed to ask but I’m not…lol…the Bisquick is the crust mix right…so now do you put it on top

  9. Hi Jamroc26… please don’t ever be embarrassed to ask anything around here, Rural Mom is a friendly space 🙂

    The crust on the top forms naturally during baking. No need to put anything on top, it will all happen during the baking process as the Bisquick “rises.”

    That’s part of the joy of this recipe, simple process for lovely rewards!

    Best,
    Barb aka Rural Mom

    • Hi Elissa,

      There is dough throughout the cobbler. As the crust is more of a batter that rises, than a traditional pre-formed crust. This is very typical of Southern cobblers.

      If you’d prefer a different variation, you’ll find plenty of other peach pie and cobbler recipes by running a quick search, some that use traditional crusts, some that use biscuits, and still others similar to my favorite one that I’ve featured.

      No doubt, it will be nummy no matter what you decide!

      Best Wishes,
      Barb

  10. So, it can be doubled in like an 9 x 11 or something like that? I’ve made one very similar to this and it was also was 8×8….just wanting to confirm if anyone has actually doubled the recipe with no problems. Thanks! And it looks great!

    • I’ve been making this for my folks for a number of years. After the very first batch, in an 8×8 pan, I doubled it (just wasn’t enough to go around). Works out very well. Family favorite for the last forty years.

  11. Omygoodness this is delicious. I like the nutmeg in this recipe. I’ve doubled the recipe with no problem, but I’m going to make it in square pans today so that I can share with the neighbors this time. Wonderful dessert.

    • For best results I highly recommend using Bisquick, but if you prefer to swap in flour, use self-rising flour and there’s no baking powder needed.

    • Ideally, yes, though I have known people who leave the peels on as they will be quite soft. I think that makes it a little too chewy and prefer to peel them and feed the scraps to the animals 🙂

  12. @barbara Heald – Here’s an easy way to print a recipe when there’s no Print button visible:

    Hold your left mouse button down and select only the actual recipe text – leave it selected.

    When you go to print, one of the options should be Print Selection. Choose that, hit print and there you go.

    If you need the print bigger, copy and paste the text into your word processor, then choose a larger font size. This is very basic stuff, but I hope it helps. Fritz

  13. I just made it for my family and I must say it was a hit!!
    10 min before it was ready I melted a tablespoon of butter with brown sugar & lightly brushed the top…..delicious! Thank you thank you for this amazing recipe. I am definitely doubling this and bringing it to my mom’s!!

    • So glad to hear that and thanks for sharing your tip, too! Brown sugar and butter on top sounds like a great addition, will have to try it that way next time!

  14. I made this a few months ago and forgot to comment. This was a hit for me since I’m no chef! It was quick and delicious. I will be making blackberry cobbler next. Thanks.

  15. ..This is almost like the one my Grandmother used to make, when I was growing up…; she would sprinkle some sugar all over the batter though, and it made it soooo yummy. Thanks for this time honored ‘ comfort food dessert’. God Bless.

  16. …This is almost like teh cobbler my Grandmother would make when I was growing up. ..; one thing she did was sprinkle a little bit of plain sugar all over the batter, and it was soooo yummy. Thanks for this time honored comfort food dessert. God Bless.

  17. Today I made this wonderful peach cobbler, after my family had Sunday dinner, I brought out the desert. My family, and friends loved it. I love this too. Thank you so much for sharing.

    • My initial thought is yes as they are close in composition, but as I haven’t tested it out I couldn’t say for sure. The common consensus from other sites (after running a Google search) is that Krusteaz can be swapped in for Bisquick for pancakes, but couldn’t find any information on use in a cobbler or cake-like recipe.

  18. Love,love,love this recipe. I used fresh peaches and still feel I need to cut back on the sugar a bit. But my family loved it. Thanks for the recipe.

  19. Hi, I want to know if you would use the Bisquick gluten free baking mix the same way as regular mix (meaning 1 cup). Thank you P.S. Can’t wait to read your book!

    • Hi Jona! Thank for stopping by and for the awesome feedback! Gluten free flour may be used for this recipe, but it will taste a little different, of course, as each flour has distinct properties. If it’s an all-purpose flour, it should be a measure for measurement swap, but do be sure to read the details on your flour bag or box, some may have special instructions. Do let me know how it turns out!

  20. Hey Barb, i’m going to try this cobbler, hope it looks like the pic that you have shown, also can I use half buttermilk and half regular milk?

    • Hi Robin, that’s wonderful, I hope you enjoy it! I haven’t used buttermilk in the recipe before, but I think using half milk, half buttermilk will be acceptable. Also thinking it’s going to add an extra element of richness, yum!

    • You spoon the peaches over the cobbler crust which will already be in the pan. So in essence, the answer is yes, Spooning is preferable to pouring the peaches as it allows you to easily ensure there is an even distribution of peaches throughout the dish. The peaches will sink into the crust layer as it bakes.

  21. Made this tonight and it was wonderful. It truly hit the spot. I made a few changes because I know what I like and don’t like. I added a half tsp of vanilla to the crust part and lessened the amount of nutmeg to a quarter tsp. For me nutmeg tends to be strong. Otherwise this recipe is heavenly. Will definitely make this again and recommend to others. Thanks for the share.

    • Thank you for sharing, Gilian, and for the terrific feedback! I’m so glad you enjoyed the results! Appreciate that you shared your tweaks to the recipe, too, for others to benefit from. So appreciated!

    • Hi Karen. Good question! Those packed in heavy syrup are likely sweet enough, yes and you can skip the sugar. I’ll make a note of that in the recipe for others. The sugar step can be skipped even with fresh peaches, it’s really just a matter of taste and it helps temper the peaches when some of the fresh ones may have a bit of sour to them (which happens if they were picked slightly early.) Hope that helps!

    • PS: I don’t have experience using Splenda in recipes, but I’m guessing it’s an acceptable substitute and may be used in a lesser quantity to your taste.

  22. Run a country guest house in the Natal Midland in South Africa
    I made the recipe with triple portion quantity with sliced mango and pitted litchis. Used 600 g crushed coconut biscuits. It was intended to a day special dessert in the restaurant and turned into a 60 minutes special. It was a hit and now we do it twice a week. Keep up the good work kind regards

  23. I doubled there recipe and not sure how long a 9×11 pan should take. It’s been an hour and a half and still looks soupy in the middle. …guessing it’s the peaches?

  24. This recipe is SO delicious! Funny thing, my mom made it, and two days later found the butter to be still in the microwave. It was awesome, even without all that butter.

    Now, to peel some peaches…which is the part I hate!
