Bisquick Cobbler

What’s great about this is you can make Bisquick recipes year round. Around here frozen is cheaper than frozen berries anyway since we live in a small town. Heck, my kids even snack on a bag of frozen blueberries as a snack sometimes. I can find just about any type of berry in the freezer section of my store.

Store brand is typically cheaper and I find no difference between this and name brands. Beyond a box of the ready baking mix and this you only need 3 ingredients.

Bisquick Cobbler recipe

Bisquick Cobbler with Frozen Fruit

I would use whole milk if you have a choice, that will make it as moist as possible. You can use this heart healthy box or the typical yellow original style. The biggest difference is the amount of fat in each serving. I have found that means your baked goods will be a bit drier with the healthier version, but it’s still quite delicious. You choose.

This is what you’ll need to get started when making any sort of berry cobblers with this boxed mix;

  1. Bag of frozen blackberries or your fruit of choice
    1. you could use fresh blackberries but I think they break down too much
    2. if you wanted fresh fruit, follow our Bisquick apple cobbler
  2. Box of baking mix
    1. there are several brands out there, Krusteaz makes one too like we used to make air fryer pancakes.
  3. Softened butter
  4. Sugar and milk
  5. A medium bowl to mix

You’ll want to use a square or circular 9″ baking pan or dish with some non stick cooking spray inside.

Bisquick Cherry Cobbler

I have used blackberries, and a mixture of fruits (mainly cherries) too which you see here below. They all turn out the same no matter what variety you decide to go with.

What makes Bisquick different?

If you’re comparing all purpose flour with this baking mix it is NOT the same. If you substituted one for the other your recipe would not work at all. This box adds in leavening, some fat, and salt. That means when you bake with it you use fewer ingredients overall.

You can make all sorts of savory and sweet things with it y’all. As a side dish these Red Lobster copycat Bisquick cheddar bay biscuits are the bomb.

Similar to our dump peach cobbler, you do this in layers (of course you’d use frozen peaches for this type). After you lay the fruit down you then just spoon the batter over the top and bake. I didn’t add any sort of crumb topping but I suppose you could do that as well. It is best to use frozen to maintain some texture while it is baking.

Bisquick Cherry cobbler

You’re going to use a 8″ round or square baking dish to make this. First spray lightly with non stick spray. Use frozen mixed berries if you like, fresh or just one variety.

  • Use a 8″ round or square baking dish. Spray lightly with non stick spray. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Put fruit into a bowl and gently toss with 1/2 cup of your sugar, set aside for 20 minutes to sit and absorb the sweetness. Melt butter in the microwave and pour into your dish.
  • In another bowl whisk together Bisquick, rest of sugar and milk until smooth. Pour into baking dish on top of the butter layer. Pour blackberry sugar mixture on top of that.
  • Bake for 55 minutes or until top is a golden brown.
  • Scoop into bowls and top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Peach Cobbler with Bisquick

This and our strawberry cake mix cookies are easy treats that takes just a bit over 30 minutes to make and bake golden brown. If you have fresh or frozen whipped topping that is great to dollop on top when serving this goodie.

Bisquick Fruit Cobbler

Several times when we have picked fruit right off the bushes out here we have created simple desserts like this one. After blackberry picking we will enjoy some along the way and then freeze them in freezer bags, same with raspberries. In July and August you can find tons of huckleberries out here too!

For this we made a huckleberry cobbler with a streusel topping instead which came out amazing as well. You may be new to using this for anything other than pancake mix but believe me when I say, it works like a charm. You will need to add some sugar to sweeten things up, more if your berries are on the more bitter side of things.

That can and should be adjusted to your tastebuds. If you wanted more sweetness I would toss the berries with sugar, Splenda or brown sugar to coat them all. Then follow the recipe below from there as far as temperature and timing. This is suggested with cranberries for sure but strawberries wouldn’t need a lot more additional sweetness.

Don’t think this is going to slice up nice like a cake or pie though. Just use a large serving spoon and scoop that baby out. The fruit will be warm and gooey with the cake like top texture mixed with it. Squirt some whipped cream on top and there you go.

How do you thicken cobbler?

If you make this Bisquick blackberry cobbler once and wish the fruit was a bit thicker on the bottom then the next time toss it with 2 tbsp of cornstarch. Then pour it into your pan and continue from there. This will bubble as it bakes and get thicker than the time before. It will continue to thicken more as it cools as well too.

I will say that this doesn’t keep very well. If you do try the next day the portion of crust that touches the blackberries will be gooey and mushy. Not my favorite texture personally so I don’t save it, we just enjoy what we want to that day and then pitch it, but there’s rarely any leftovers.

Fruit Cobbler with Crust on Top

  • 1 1/4 c Bisquick
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 c butter softened
  • 3/4 c milk whole is best
  • 24 oz frozen berries or fresh
  • Use a 8″ round or square baking dish. Spray lightly with non stick spray. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Put fruit into a bowl and gently toss with 1/2 cup of your sugar, set aside for 20 minutes to sit and absorb the sweetness. Melt butter in the microwave and pour into your dish.
  • In another bowl whisk together Bisquick, rest of sugar and milk until smooth. Pour into baking dish on top of the butter layer. Pour blackberry sugar mixture on top of that.
  • Bake for 55 minutes or until top is a golden brown.
  • Scoop into bowls and top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

This definitely says to put the sugar-berry mixture in the baking dish last, but everywhere else in the post says this is a crust-on-top recipe! Or maybe I’m totally misunderstanding??? “ In another bowl whisk together Bisquick, rest of sugar and milk until smooth. Pour into baking dish on top of the butter layer. Pour blackberry sugar mixture on top of that.”

sorry about the confusion, I made it a few times different ways when people said they had issues with it the other way around. Decided for consistency purposes the batter is better under the fruit

I learned a little dump-style tip for whenever melted butter goes in the bottom of the pan: instead of using the microwave to melt it, just put it in the pan and pop it in the oven during preheating. It saves a step at the start, and makes slightly less cleanup for later.

I made this last night, and it was soooo good. What I love is how easy it is to make. It has all the flavor and texture that makes a cobbler so wonderful, and it's ready so fast. That's a huge thing for me, especially on a weeknight!
