Blueberry Cornmeal Cobbler Recipe

Cornbread, blueberries and maple syrup butter give this special dessert a taste that’s different from any cobbler you’ve had before. I came across the recipe many years ago. —Judy Watson, Tipton, Indiana

"I kept recipe as it was presented except that since I did not have buttermilk, I soured 3/4 cup milk with 1 Tbsp. vinegar. I used a greased and floured 12x8" baking pan. I'd also used the grated peel of 1 medium

lemon. I baked 40 minutes. This recipe was very good! I shared some with our Social Hour group today and the folks who tasted the cobbler liked it! delowenstein"
