Blackberry Cornbread

Blackberry Cornbread!  Enjoy the burst of fresh fruit in this ultra moist and buttery cornbread.

I put fruit inside my cornbread.

Genius or insane?  I mean, people make cornmeal cakes.  Which is there really any difference between a cornmeal cake and cornbread?  A lot of people put sugar or a sweetener like honey in their cornbread.  Sooooo..it’s basically the same thing.  Right?

Personally I love loading up my cornbread with honey to give it that sweet taste.  Then of course I still drizzle some on top.  Because I can.

Anyway..back to this Blackberry cornbread.  It’s amazing.  The end.  No joke.  I am a huge fan of dressing up my cornbread.  Remember that Farmer’s Market Cornbread? Except instead of going savory I decided to go a little bit sweet.  And I also upped the butter in this recipe to make it ultra moist and give a bit more flavor and lighter texture to the cornbread.  It’s not quite as thick and gritty as my other cornbread.

I still absolutely am considering this to be a side dish and not a dessert.  Mostly because I still think I should get dessert after a meal that involves this dish on the side.  But load this cornbread up with some butter and honey and I will happily eat it for each and every meal possible.  I personally think this makes a perfect breakfast food too.

But add a slice of this on the side of your favorite BBQ or Chili and the burst of berries will be a wonderful surprise.
