Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe
Hi everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home, sharing my go-to dessert recipe, Easy Peach Cobbler! I am not the best baker, so if I am sharing a dessert recipe, you better believe that it’s easy. No fancy desserts for me! I love that you can easily whip this together and then let it bake, no babysitting required. Once it comes out of the oven, I love to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
What kind of peaches should I use?
This dessert recipe is so versatile because you can use frozen, fresh, or canned peaches. I prefer to use frozen because you get the texture of fresh, without all the work of peeling and pitting. I live in the North East, so our access to fresh fruit is limited to the seasons, but by using frozen fruit, you can make this any time of the year.
Peach Cobbler with Bisquick
There are so many different versions of fruit cobbler, but I love ones that start with a baking mix. I have tried ones with self-rising flour and ones topped with biscuits, and they are all delicious, but the Bisquick version is my favorite. You get the texture of biscuits, but with the crust baked all throughout.
I have been experimenting with gluten-free baking due to some family allergies, and you can easily make this into a gluten-free cobbler. Bisquick has a gluten-free version and it works perfectly with this recipe. Give it a try if you have a family member that’s gluten-free.
How to make the best peach cobbler
Peach cobbler was invented by early American settlers. It gets it name from it’s rustic appearance – it looks as though it was “cobbled” together.
- Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees and pouring melted butter in an 8-inch baking dish. This will mix with the base to form the batter that will become the cake part of the cobbler, and also help to grease the pan.
- Whisk together milk, bisquick, and vanilla and pour over the butter. Stir gently to distribute. Don’t stir completely together.
- In a mixing bowl, mix together thawed frozen peaches, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon peaches over the batter.
- Bake until the top is golden brown and set. As it bakes, the batter rises around the peaches forming a moist almost cake-like topping.
- Serve warm or at room temperature. We like to top our peach cobbler with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
What to do with leftovers
Storing Peach Cobbler: Cover your cobbler with plastic wrap and/or foil to keep out moisture and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Freezing Peach Cobbler: Cobblers freeze quite well if properly stored. Wrap tightly with a couple layers of plastic wrap and foil, ideally right in the baking dish for easy reheating. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then bring up to room temperature. You can also heat in oven for several minutes or until warmed through.
