1 9-inch skillet bread


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 cup frozen sweet corn kernels

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup cornmeal

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

  • 2 large eggs


  1. Pour vegetable oil into a 9-inch cast iron skillet and place skillet in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. While the oven is preheating, place corn in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Place corn in a colander to drain any excess liquid, then transfer to a medium bowl. Add blueberries and 2 tablespoons flour and toss to combine; set aside.

  3. Combine cornmeal, 1 cup flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

  4. Whisk buttermilk, melted butter, and eggs together in a small bowl. Pour into the cornmeal-flour mixture and mix to combine. Gently fold in the reserved blueberry-corn mixture.

  5. Remove skillet from the oven and brush the oil onto the bottom and sides until coated. Pour batter into the hot skillet and level the top with a spatula.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.

Cook's Note:

You can use frozen blueberries in place of fresh, if preferred.
