And of course, I’m sharing my brand new Blueberry Cornbread!
There’s a grocery store here that make the most incredible blueberry cornbread, so I set out to recreate it.
I like to use fresh berries for this, but frozen will work just as well.
Of course, you’ve got to have Martha White self-rising cornmeal mix!
To start, preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly spray an 8×8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk your dry ingredients together.
In another bowl, mix the eggs, milk, and vanilla together. Then combined the two and add the melted butter. Mix well. Then fold in the blueberries.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes to until set and golden brown.

Hi! My mom had a similar recipe for muffins. Her’s also required self rising flour and self rising cornmeal. Is the white lily self rising cornmeal MIX the same as self rising cornmeal?
Love your recipes!
Thanks, Donna! Unfortunately, it’s not. Self-rising cornmeal mix had flour in it while self-rising cornmeal is just cornmeal and leaveners.
Thank you Stacy!
I just looked at recipe again and thought I had answered my own question. The photo of the white lily bag in this recipe says cornmeal mix??
Can’t wait to make it and the coconut pound cake I just saw!
You’re exactly right! When I get comments, I can’t always see what recipe they’re attached to, so I was answering the question based on general terms and not as it relates to this particular recipe. But yes, you should use cornmeal mix with this recipe. Though I’m pretty sure plain self-rising cornmeal will work, too. Sorry for the confusion!
What a great combination! This could pass for a light dessert with a little maple syrup drizzled over the top. I would lightly flour the blueberries before folding in……it keeps them from sinking to the bottom while baking.
Thanks so much, Louise!
Can you use a cast iron skillet for this?
Is it best to use a glass or metal baking dish?
I much prefer a dark colored metal for a crispier edges, but any will work.
A BIG 10 .
