This Bisquick™ Peach Cobbler Recipe is most likely something that your Grandma or Mom whipped up in the 1960’s or 70’s maybe even the 80’s – and we (the royal, collective WE, you and I, the people of the same awesome mostly sane mind) are okay with that.  Now I have changed the original Bisquick™ Peach Cobbler recipe to suit my needs and tastes- this is a fresh peach recipe, I wanted brown sugar for that amazing caramel taste- and I still used Bisquick™ . I have included the original Bisquick™ Peach Cobbler Recipe so that you have a choice in which you want to make!

Original Bisquick™ Peach Cobbler Recipe Ingredients

Bisquick™ is fun,  easy and generally retro-licious to bake with, so don’t be one of those people telling me it’s “poison” <— dudes this has TOTALLY HAPPENED! I have been food blogging for 9 years and I STILL get surprised at the comments people leave, what a job I get to do!I have changed the recipe from the original one that uses canned peaches, so here are the ingredients for the original recipe. Simply just use them instead of mine and follow the same directions!

  • 1 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can (29 ounces) sliced peach, drained

Fresh Peach Cobbler

I had fresh peaches to use up, so fresh it was. I visited Davison Orchards in BC, and had a ton to use up!  I also don’t need a super sweet dish, and by using the fresh peaches and brown sugar it made for a really simple, excellent peach cobbler. I am not opposed to using canned peaches for a fantastic taste of sunshine in the middle of the winter months but there honestly is no use to using canned peaches in the middle of the summer – unless you are looking for the EXACT taste of what your Mom or your Grandma used to make. If you are looking for that retro taste that just cannot be duplicated with fresh peaches it’s okay. Go ahead and make it. Food, eating and recipes are supposed to be fun and non-judgmental – and I’m just going to go ahead and make sure that I uphold that philosophy on this little corner of the internet that I own. Poison my arse. Go ahead and use packaged ingredients in moderation and you darn well enjoy every single bite of it – no one gets out of this life journey alive, by the way, just in case you didn’t realize that.

    How do you “stick a toothpick in the baked part”? The sliced peaches cover the entire mix.

  2. Doogie says

    What I find most annoying about recipes online lately I’d the pages and pages of commentary before getting to the recipe. I’m not looking for a story! I don’t need a BFF. I want to make a recipe! I need the ingredients and the technique. A picture is also important. On this one I had to page through all kinds of nonsense and almost gave up, because after the ingredients, it was pages and pages – that I did not read – before I found the instructions.

    • Karlynn Johnston says

      There’s a jump to recipe button at the top for a reason, use it!5 stars

    • says

      How rude. Clink the “jump to recipe”.

    • Renee Titus says

      Making it now for Thanksgiving. Smells delicious, using you pics also as guide to doneness. I increased everything to make one large pan & one 8×8. Hoping it tastes as good as it smells & fam loves it. Thank you for Bisquick instructions. I’d never bake this w/o it. Happy Holidays!!4 stars

  3. Heather says

    So yummy! I used fresh white and yellow peaches. I also added cinnamon and vanilla to the peaches and omitted the nutmeg because I was out. Turned out SUPERB! My kids gobbled it up with the vanilla bean ice cream.5 stars

  4. Kay Macleod says

    This recipe has too much sugar! One cup is way too much.

  6. Kandi Jones says

    Can I prepare this then freeze? Then I would take out of freezer and bake. I have fresh peaches but need a cobbler next week. Thank you!

    • Lassie says

      You can prepare the peaches and freeze them for use next week. Bisquick and biscuits use baking powder for quick leavening so best to mix that part just before baking. You could even thaw the frozen peaches in the microwave if you are in a hurry.

  7. Kim says

    Hello, when using the canned peaches do you use peaches in fruit juice, heavy syrup or light syrup?

  8. Lisa L Barnes says

    I love your Choices here. All 3 are my all time favorites.5 stars

  9. Bobbie says

    Can you use canned pie filling for this recipe?

  10. Darcie says

    I made this and it was delicious! Thank you for sharing!😃5 stars

    • Jerika says

      In the original recipe it says to use sugar? Do I mix in with mix or coat peaches with sugar?

  11. Mandy McFarland says

    I melt stick butter in 11×7. mix bisquick with milk, splash of vanilla, shake of cinnamon. I use can peaches (or blackberries equivalent) mixed in 3/4 cup sugar. I pour batter over butter, then drop fruit on top of batter. Dribble some of fruit sugar juice around top. My family can’t eat it fast enough, it’s always requested.5 stars

  12. Patti says

    Great recipe with fresh peaches!! I made as directed but peeled the peaches and added only 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead of 1 cup. It was still plenty sweet enough for us.5 stars

  13. A.Marie says

    My frugal Grandma used to drain the canned peaches and use the juice as the liquid in place of the milk. If the drained liquid wasn’t quite enough, she’d make up the amount with milk. She would also then cut down the amount of sugar that the recipe called for, because the canned peach juice already had sugar in it. It was delicious!!!

  14. Mine says

    Next time I will leave the spices out and add another cup of bisquick so it’s a little more crusty.5 stars

    • Tammy Yoder says

      Dear Karlyn I just found your site today and have been poring over the recipes-looks sooo fricken good 😝😉 made the peach cobbler and LOVED it!! Can I make this in advance and put in fridge overnight to bake the next day,? Thanks

  15. Sherri H says

    I’ve made this five times in the last two weeks!! It’s so easy and good!!

    One time I only had a small can of peaches, so I added a can of drained Mandarin orange segments as well. It was really good!! Next time I’m trying it with pears and peaches.

    It’s so easy that my 5 yr old twin granddaughters love helping me with it!!

    Thank you for sharing with us 5 ?s up

  16. Mary Stien says

    I don’t have nutmeg. Will cinnamon be ok?

    • Connie says

      Yes. That’s fine. I think it’s matter of personal choice anyway.

  17. Anita says

    A question. My peaches are ready to go, but I need the cobbler for 4 days hence. Can I briefly freeze it?

  18. Linda Keesling says

    My Mom made this peach cobbler for years! Love it but it seems like the 8x8x2 pan was to small. Is this the right size? I’m using canned peaches.

    • Karlynn Johnston says

      I prefer a skillet, maybe try a 9×9 next time? The original one from Bisquick is baked in an 8×8…

  19. KAte says

    Nothing beats a peach cobbler and you’re right, use prepacked ingredients once in a while, live and enjoy! Excellent thank you, I baked it in a skillet and it was divine.5 stars

  20. Dan says

    Yummy!! I used 2x the size and only 1 cup of sugar. I pealed the peaches and sliced them, and put them in concentrated orange juice solution while I prepared the pancake mixture.. I drained the orange juice from the peaches and put them in the pan like that, cooked about 55 minutes and it come out a little bit tart only, very good!!!!5 stars

  21. Cat A Murphy says

    I’m TOTALLY making this, but I was also curious if you could do this somehow with cherries? The pie filling might be too wet I don’t know.

    • Karlynn Johnston says

      You would have to change it up a bit, but not sure of the exact measurements….maybe 1/3 cup less milk?5 stars

    • Robin says

      Any pie filling will work! I did mine with cherry 🍒 ☺️

  22. Kathleen says

    Directions don’t utilize the milk. Though I would assume that the milk is for the dough, it should say that.
    Also, fresh peach recipe includes cinnamon, canned does not. Looking at the ingredients in my canned peaches, there is no cinnamon in the can. Too much confusion for me here. I am a northerner trying to make this for my southern husband. I do not like or eat peach cobbler myself, so I cannot just mix to taste and run with it.

    • Connie Lee says

      With fresh peaches I used the juice of 1 fresh lemon and a small amount of lemon zest to kick it up a notch.
      I also used 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
      The final results was outstanding!
      From: Connie

    • Grandma Suess says

      Don’t blame being from the north! I was born and raised near Philadelphia, and we ate cobbler in PA. Common sense should tell you to use the milk to make the dough. And just sprinkle cinnamon on top before baking; it’s not that difficult.5 stars

  23. Joy says

    Made the Bisquick quiche and shared with neighbours. Tossed in some asparagus and it made a huge hit
    My friend had never made a quiche so I informed her of this “secret” Bisquick recipe
    U am anxious to try the ppeobbler5 stars

  24. Marion Lawrence says

    Enjoy your all the recipes if i need a new one for oven fried chicken. I know where to go to find
    a good one. Thank you for sharing your recipes.5 stars

    • Karlynn says

      That’s awesome, thank you so much for the kind words! Yes, that oven fried chicken is the best!5 stars

    • Shannon says

      I wondering is there egg in the mix to hold mix together? May just use the whites to solidify. Been using the original recipe for years, requires both nutmeg and cinnamon plus some apples for a little extra kick. Happy holidays to all.

  25. Karlynn says

    I love a good condensed soup recipe! It’s all about balance. You can’t please everyone, so I’m just going to please myself and post recipes that I love! Happy Tuesday!

  26. Carissa Nelson | Spoonful of Easy says

    Hi Karlynn,

    Love this! And I feel sad that all convenience ingredients are now our enemy. Like I have a recipe that I want to post, but it involves condensed soup and I’m afraid everyone is going to @ me. Like, do I need to be milling my own grain at this point or what, lol? Love a tried and true recipe and this looks like a crowd pleaser!

    • Lassie says

      The fresh peaches were extremely ripe, so I cut down on the sugar. Nutmeg is a wonderful idea. Lemon might have been nice since my peaches were so sweet. I use light sour cream in Bisquick biscuits. Salted butter was a good idea and adds a saltiness to contrast the sweetness. I am letting it cool down. I know it will be delicious. Thanks.4 stars
