This quick and easy Bisquick Apple Cobbler made with fresh apples is absolute perfection when it’s served warm with vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of caramel, or a dollop of whipped cream.
Bisquick Apple Cobbler
We are huge apple lovers in this house, so I love pretty much all baked apple desserts. This Bisquick apple cobbler was so delicious, and had such an amazing texture.
I’m really torn about whether this apple cobbler or this Bisquick Peach Cobbler is my favorite. They’re both so incredibly delicious.
The apples in this cobbler are so soft, tender, and full of sweet cinnamon flavor. The crispy caramelized edges are always my favorite party though.
I love how quick and easy it is to put this delicious warm dessert together. We served it with vanilla ice cream, and it all just melts together in your mouth.

What’s The Difference Between A Cobbler And A Crisp?
Cobblers and crisps are both very easy baked fruit desserts. The main difference is that a cobbler is more dense than a crisp. Cobblers are made with biscuit dough, while crisps are made with a fruit base that has an oatmeal crisp topping.

Sugar: We’re using a combination of white granulated sugar and light brown sugar in this recipe. White sugar keeps the cobbler light and stops it from being too dense. Light brown sugar makes the cobbler more moist, and adds a lovely layer of that quintessential caramelized flavor.
Apples: I used Honeycrisp apples in this recipe, but Granny Smith apples are also a wonderful option.
Bisquick: Using a ready-made baking mix makes the whole process so much easier. It’s already measured out with the perfect amount of leaveners, so you don’t have to worry about baking soda or baking powder.
Milk: Milk is the liquid we’re mixing with Bisquick to make the base of our batter. I wouldn’t recommend swapping it for water. Since milk has a higher fat content than water, it will have a richer flavor and the cobbler will be more tender with a finer crumb.
Butter: Mixing melted butter into the cobbler batter adds a richer flavor and helps create those delicious caramelized edges.
Flavors: Adding a bit of ground cinnamon and pure vanilla extract adds a lovely layer of flavor that really enhances the apples. I love the combination of apples and cinnamon, but if you prefer nutmeg, you could use that instead.
How To Make Apple Cobbler With Bisquick
Start by mixing together the white sugar and the light brown sugar. Peel, core, and slice your apples, then toss the apple slices in the sugar mixture until the slices are evenly coated. (See the recipe card below for the full printable instructions.)
Mix together the Bisquick, milk, and cinnamon. Add in the melted butter and vanilla, and stir to combine.
Transfer the batter to an ungreased baking dish, then spoon the apples and sugar mixture evenly over the batter. You could also use a cast iron skillet or a Dutch oven to bake this in.
Bake uncovered in a preheated oven until the cobbler is golden brown and bubbly. See the recipe card below for the full written instructions, including ingredient amounts, cooking times, and helpful tips, etc.
The Best Apples For Baking
Honeycrisp and Granny Smith apples are my two favorite apples for baking.
If you prefer a more tart apple to balance out the sweetness of the cobbler that has a bit of a firmer bite, I’d recommend Granny Smith.
If you prefer a moderately sweet apple that will almost melt in your mouth after baking, I recommend using Honeycrisp apples.
Do You Have To Peel Apples For Apple Cobbler?
I highly recommend it. The skins will never get as soft as the rest of the apple slices, so any baked apple dessert will taste so much better if you take the time to peel the apples.
