Blueberry Buttermilk Cornbread is loaded with fresh, sweet blueberries. Comfort food at its’ best, this homemade cornbread recipe makes a perfect snack, side dish or dessert topped with vanilla ice cream.
Summer and blueberries go hand in hand at least for me. They are one of my favorite fruits and so versatile in recipes.
Although I try not to bake much during the hot summer months (because summer in the South!), Blueberry Buttermilk Cornbread was a necessity! The mixture of blueberries, with cornmeal, flour, a little sugar to sweeten and buttermilk to keep the cornbread tender is a winning combination.
Blueberry Buttermilk Cornbread
It’s definitely not your traditional cornbread recipe, but worth trying all the same. I think you’ll be hooked as I was.
I like the tender inside texture, but you could make these into muffins and cut down on the cook time. Of course, I don’t like cleaning muffin tins therefore… iron skillet.
You could use this batter to make muffins or waffles. Sometimes I’m lazy and don’t want to clean the crevices of the muffin tin or waffle iron so I make a thick Blueberry Buttermilk Cornbread and smother it in Blueberry Butter or Cinnamon butter.
I used fresh blueberries in my Blueberry Buttermilk Cornbread, you could also use frozen berries. They are usually much cheaper than fresh.
