  • Mix blueberries, chia seeds, sugar, lemon zest, juice, and salt together in a 2-quart baking dish. Set aside.

  • Whisk cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture looks like small peas. Mix in buttermilk, then fold in corn kernels.

  • Drop golf ball-sized scoops of the cornmeal batter over the blueberries.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until blueberry juices are bubbling and the topping is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Cool for 15 to 30 minutes before serving.

I think this is a great summer dessert. It's not super sweet which lets the fruit shine. However the ratio of filling to topping seems off. I would probably doubling the filling because I had a thin layer of fruit with a thick layer of cornbread. Read More

1.22.20... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/273428/blueberry-cornbread-cobbler/... I like different. I do. I'm second to review. The first said it's not very sweet & needs more filling. I upped blues to 5c sugar to 1/2c & added 1/2c flour to thicken; no chia seeds; 9x13. It's still only slightly sweet. As for the cornbread the batter was so thick it wasn't going to do anything once in the oven. I added a little milk to lighten the heaviness. Nothing particularly good - or bad - about this. Hoped for magic but it didn t happen. Can t eat it on Day2.:(... This is very good https://www.allrecipes.com/personal-recipe/62424942/cobbled-blueberries/ Read More
