  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly. May be substituted with your favorite oil for dairy-free option
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup may be substituted with honey or granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk or 1 cup dairy free milk combined with 1 tablespoon lemon juice for dairy free option
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all purpose flour divided
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup blueberries frozen blueberries may be used, simply thaw and blot dry


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a cast iron skillet with enough melted butter or oil and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter with the maple syrup until combined. Add the eggs and buttermilk and whisk until incorporated.
  • Add 1 cup of the flour and cornmeal to the dry ingredients, then sprinkle the baking powder, baking soda and salt over the top and whisk until just combined.
  • Toss the blueberries with the remaining 1 tablespoon of flour, then add to the batter and fold them in gently until incorporated.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared skillet and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes on the middle rack of the oven until the cornbread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 15-20 minutes, serve and enjoy!


  • No cast iron skillet? Use a greased 8x8" baking dish or 8-9" cake or pie pan. Baking times will vary slightly depending on the size of the pan, so begin checking for doneness after 20 minutes.
  • Make your own buttermilk by adding 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or vinegar to whatever type of milk that you have on hand and allow to stand for 5-10 minutes. Dairy free milk works well too!
  • Honey or granulated sugar may be substituted for the maple syrup.
