Blueberry Cornbread Cobbler Recipe

Gourmet Recipes for the Great Outdoors

 

Just because you’re enjoying the great outdoors doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy great food. For these adventurous locals, camping – whether it be in tents, RVs, or somewhere in between – is more than just an opportunity to relish nature’s splendor. It’s a way to use some seriously tasty food to bring together friends and family.

Cast Iron Corn-Berry Cobbler

 

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 1–2 Tbsp. cornstarch (optional)
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup + optional 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar (for the calorie conscientious, monk fruit sugar is a great alternative)
  • 1 tsp. dried lavender, minced (optional)
  • 1 scraped vanilla bean or tsp. of vanilla extract
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 stick butter

 

Directions

If using frozen berries, sprinkle 1-2 Tbsp. of cornstarch over them to keep them from getting too soggy. Mix all dry ingredients and then add liquid ingredients, excluding the butter. Stir until you achieve a batter texture. Melt butter in a skillet and cook until it starts to brown. Add the batter, followed by the berries. Cook at 400° in a convection oven until center is set, which should be approximately 30-45 minutes. For a sweeter dish, sprinkle 1 Tbsp. of sugar on top of crust once it has set. Serves 5.
