one 10" deep round


Choose your measure:


  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg



  • 1/8 cup (2 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. To make the fruit mixture: Combine the blueberries, sugar, maple syrup, tapioca, lemon extract, cinnamon and nutmeg in an ungreased 10" spider (cast iron skillet) or a shallow 11" quiche or tart dish.
  3. To make the topping: Mix the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  4. Cream the butter with the confectioners' sugar, then beat in the egg and buttermilk.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour the batter over the berries in the pan.
  6. Bake the cobbler for 35 to 40 minutes, until the berries are bubbling and the cornbread is lightly browned and feels done when you touch it.
  7. To make the glaze: Melt the butter and mix it with the maple syrup.
  8. Brush the glaze atop the hot cobbler.
  9. Put the cobbler under the broiler for about 1 minute, or until the top is glazed.
  10. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. If desired, the cobbler can be refrigerated for up to 5 days or frozen for longer storage, up to 3 months.
