Blueberries and bread are a marriage made in heaven. I was making a spicy dish last week and thought cornbread would be perfect side. And then I had a brilliant idea – a sweet/savory side so I added blueberries to the cornbread.
You might have read in some of my other posts that I have a very nice assortment of cast iron pans and I love to cook and bake in them. Cast iron is a perfect vessel for baking because it distributes the heat evenly and baked goods do not stick to the pan. In our house, cornbread is always prepared in a cast iron pan.
This cornbread turned out very moist with a sweet (from the blueberries) and savory (from the cornbread) mix that is perfect for any meal. Well truth be told – I made a large batch of this and it was even better the next morning for breakfast with my coffee. So I think I can now sub this as a coffee cake.
