Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 10-inch cast iron skillet, or another 2-quart baking dish (such as an 11 x 7-inch pan or a deep 8-inch or 9-inch square pan).
Arrange peaches in the prepared dish.
In a large bowl, whisk together Bisquick, sugar, milk, melted butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg until combined.
Pour batter over the peaches.
Bake, uncovered, for about 1 hour (or until golden brown and set).
Fresh, frozen or canned peaches will all work in this cobbler. If you're using fresh peaches, you'll need to peel and slice them before adding them to your dish. For frozen peaches, make sure that you thaw them (and drain off any extra liquid) before adding them to the dish. If using canned peaches, drain off any liquid before adding them to the dish.
Total baking time can vary depending on your oven and the type of dish that you're using. The cobbler is done when the topping is totally set (like a cake), it isn't jiggly in the middle, and you can’t see any batter bubbling.
If the top of the cobbler turnstoo brown, cover loosely with foil until it's cooked through.
Serve the cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
If you don't have Bisquick, any similar all-purpose baking mix will work. I have also tested this recipe with this Krusteaz Pancake Mix, and I bet a similar mix from Aunt Jemima or other brands will work.
This easy cobbler has a soft cake-like batter that puffs up around the fruit. If you're looking for a biscuit-topped cobbler with a saucy fruit filling, try this blueberry peach cobbler.
A cast iron skillet is my preference for those great crispy edges and for its even heat distribution, but you can use any 2-quart baking dish (such as an 11 x 7-inch pan, or a deep 8-inch or 9-inch square pan).
To make the cake batter from scratch (without the Bisquick shortcut), follow these instructions.
Add other warm spices to the peach cobbler crust for a warm, cozy, homemade flavor. Ginger pairs really well with peaches. Other good options include allspice and cloves.
Swap out some of the peaches and add fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries to the cobbler.
