Blueberry Cornbread

Last weekend we went blueberry picking at a local farm, the Bush-n-Vine, and came home with a whopping 1 gallon bucket filled to the brim with delicious, sweet blueberries. That’s a lot of blueberries.

I’ve been cooking up a storm with them and this is the first of the blueberry recipes I have to share- Blueberry Cornbread. It’s phenomenal!


I used equal parts cornmeal and flour so the cornbread has a little bit of a cakey texture, but not much. The texture is a little crumbly, but the pockets of blueberries help hold it together. A good amount of brown sugar sweetens the batter and enhances the flavor of the blueberries.

I was going to make some cinnamon honey butter to go with it, but the Blueberry Cornbread was so yummy by itself, I completely forgot about the butter.

Only problem is, I don’t know if I’ll ever want cornbread without blueberries again.
