Today when a Sparkfriend mentioned she was making peach cobbler, I immediately thought of the $8 worth of gigantic yummy peaches waiting to rot in my fridge. I stopped by the fruit stand near work the other day, and though I’ve been trying, there’s just no way I can manage to eat all those peaches myself (Jimmie’s gone for the week).
So, peach cobbler sounded like a great idea. I was craving something sweet, I had peaches to spare, and I knew I had Bisquick somewhere in the pantry. Only problem….our milk was on the bubble about 4 days ago. No way I was even going to open it to sniff it. And I certainly wasn’t going out to buy more. No problem, I figure I can use water and it’ll more or less turn out the same. Hopefully.
Let’s set something straight. While I like to cook, I do not have the patience, time, or inclination for long detailed recipes. Give me 3 or 4 ingredients and I’m golden. In fact, I spent about 10 minutes looking for a simple recipe online that didn’t require milk….NOT an easy task. I never found one, so then I spent another 5 minutes trying to convince myself it was worth the effort to make something up. In the end, I decided that my desire for peach cobbler outweighed my desire to sit on the couch and play on Pinterest.
So here’s The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Peach Cobbler (recipe at the bottom):
- Grab some peaches. Wash em’ (or don’t, but that’s on you) and cut ’em up into little pieces. Throw ’em in a glass loaf pan or baking dish.
- Grab some Bisquick – come on, I know you have Bisquick – some water, some sugar, and some vanilla. Mix it all together. Spoon it on top of the peaches. Drizzle some honey on top.
- Throw it in the oven. Well, don’t throw it.
- Bake it. Mine was still gooey in the middle, but I like it that way….if you don’t, cook it longer or up the temp.
I have to say, I’m a cobbler goddess. Yup, it’s that good. You could make this with any fruit, of course. And the best part? It’s relatively healthy. When I put it into the SparkPeople recipe calculator, here’s what came back:

Not bad! And honestly, I couldn’t tell a difference in using water instead of milk. I bet this would be yummy with some ice cream too. Think I’ll be having it for breakfast…..
