Apple Cobbler with Bisquick

I love easy, that is where this apple cobbler with Bisquick comes into play. When company shows up unexpectedly or you just want a quick easy dessert at night but don’t have a lot of energy, this is a win. With fresh green apples, milk, butter and some ready made pancake mix it is easier than ever. (affiliate links present)

I am sure that you too were brought up with this big yellow box. Your mom brought it out on the weekends to make pancakes or fluffy Bisquick biscuits but that was about it. Times have changed! You can make so many more goodies with this as a base so you can skip the baking powder, salt and all the other things and just GO.

Since it is about summertime I am always thinking of fresh apple recipes and what I can add to that list this year. This sounded like a good add on so my girls and I got to some baking the other weekend together, that is so much fun.

You see, this is also a baking mix as you can see on the box. I honestly think they added that verbiage only recently because “back in the day” it was really just used for those 2 items. One savory as a side dish and the other for breakfast with syrup, that was it.

How do you cut apples for cobbler?

It’s not hard. First you will want to peel the skins off. Yes those would add texture and fiber but isn’t pleasing to the palate baked this way. You want soft all the way around for this. After skinned and cored, just slice into 1×1″ pieces that are bite sized. Then you’re ready for baking all the things.

If you’re trying to replicate Grandma’s apple cobbler recipe, this is a cheater way for sure. I mean I can’t say it will taste exactly the same since it isn’t from scratch homemade, but still delicious. I would say this is more like a cake, unless you chose to added something like our muffin crumb topping.

Bisquick Cobbler Recipe

It’s all about the sweetness right? Brown sugar will do that the best, with some butter of course. That makes everything taste better. Want to add a savory element to the dish? Sprinkle some candied bacon on top when it is done with some vanilla ice cream. OMG I know, that takes it over the top.

There are a few tweaks you could make to this but stick with the base such as adding some dried cranberries, make an oat and butter crumb to go on the top, or crushed walnuts within. Here are the basics you will need to get started;

  1. Box of Bisquick baking mix
  2. Milk
  3. Brown sugar
  4. Melted butter
  5. A bit of cinnamon and nutmeg is nice too
  6. Of course you will need a few apples too

What are the best apples for baking apple cake

There are two choices. Honeycrisp are great if you want to keep it nice and sweet. They have a softer texture and great flavor. To add a bit of tartness use Granny Smith apples instead, those are firmer with a bit of a kick.

Bisquick Apple Cake

I use the terms cake and cobbler together here because you could use either to really describe this. If you wanted the classic crumb on top I would use the same one as we included in our homemade huckleberry cobbler last summer.

  • First you want to preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
    • Peel the skins and chop the apples into bite sized chunks. 
    • Combine apples and brown sugar in a bowl. 
  • Microwave this mixture at 30 second intervals in the microwave until the sugar has melted.
    • In a separate bowl, mix the Bisquick baking mix, milk and melted butter together.
  • Stir in the cinnamon.
  • Pour the batter into an 8×8 (or 9×9) baking dish or casserole dish, top with your apple/sugar mixture.
  • Bake apple dessert for approximately 50-55 minutes, or until golden brown on the edges and center is still tender but not wet. 

You could serve vanilla ice cream or whipped topping, or enjoy as is. It’s great served warm or cooled in the fridge too.

OH we have made tons of different Bisquick recipes using this stuff….let me share just a few of our favorite dessert recipes. I will continue to add more as time goes on so stay tuned and sign up for my newsletter below so you can get them too.

Our most popular one would be our Bisquick blackberry cobbler. You could use any type of frozen fruit in that one.

For another fruit cobbler tweak you can try our cake mix cobbler with canned peaches or apple pie filling some night. Pure comfort food and is as easy as this Bisquick apple cobbler recipe is to make together.

How to save leftovers – The best method is to remove what is left out of the pan and transfer to a plate covered tightly with plastic wrap, or in a freezer bag. If you use the latter make sure to suck all the air out, it is the enemy and will make it dry.

How to reheat leftover cobbler

You want to ideally add a bit of moisture before reheating. I would spoon 1 tbsp of milk over the top of your piece and microwave for 45 seconds until warmed. You could alternatively use maple syrup or even whipped cream that will melt and give it some more moisture so it doesn’t dry out.
