Blackberry Cornmeal CakeYou can substitute an equal amount of fresh blueberries for the blackberries; be sure to rinse and dry them thoroughly before scattering over the batter.

Yellow cornmeal produces a dessert that has a rich, golden color, but you could use white cornmeal instead.
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/4 cup for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1 tablespoon for skillet
  • 2 containers fresh blackberries (5.6 ounces each)
servings:8
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar. In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter; pour over flour mixture, whisking to combine.
  2. In a 10-inch skillet (preferably cast-iron), heat remaining tablespoon butter in the oven until melted and skillet is hot, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven; swirl to coat bottom of pan. Pour batter into skillet; scatter blackberries on top, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup sugar.

    This tasted great! But all my blackberries sank to the bottom and made it a little soggy.

    Think I will substitute out the flour part and just use a yellow cake mix for $1 the flour is $7...lol and then add a prepackaged cornmeal muffin mix together those blueberries are bad when you try to put them on the top so think I will buy blueberry jam at the dollar tree and just dab it in. My kids hate that blueberries on their they think it is mold or something. Dumb kids jk.
  • Sounds great, will convert to gluten-free

    This sounds great! I'm going to make a couple of conversions, though, to make it gluten-free. I love cornbread with blackberry jam, so this ought to be good.

    I've ALREADY sent this out to both my e-mail address and to my dad's e-mail address account. I parents are probably looking at this recipe for themselves. My dad ABSOLUTELY love any kind of deserts that has Blackberry in it. I cannot wait to hear their response about this recipe. I also cannot wait to make this for myself either.
