Blueberry Cinnamon Cornbread

Blueberries, cinnamon and sugar inside and out.

blueberry cinnamon corn bread

This blueberry cornbread is layered with cinnamon and sugar inside and out.

On the outside, the cinnamon and sugar mixture has a slight crunch to it from baking in the oven.

And on the inside the cinnamon and sugar mixture plus the blueberries sweeten up the cornbread giving it a taste similar to a blueberry muffin. 

Blueberry Corn Bread

The ingredients are basic pantry ingredients….nothing fancy….just corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder, canola oil, and cinnamon.

But the flavor is soooo delicious.

The blueberries and cinnamon are such a wonderful combination with cornbread.

It tastes amazing whether it’s warm, cold, or at room temperature.

Just spread a little butter on top and you’ll for sure want seconds.

An idea is to bake this cornbread in an iron skillet.

You just need to make sure you have really thick oven mitts because the iron gets super hot in the oven.

Cornbread looks so authentic when cooked in an iron-type skillet.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

If using frozen blueberries, they can be added when they’re still frozen. 

I find that it actually helps with keeping their shape rather than adding them when defrosted.

  1. Just made these and they are DELICIOUS! Thank you so much for this recipe! I made them into 6 large muffins and the blueberry-cinnamon flavour is just perfect. The cinnamon sugar browned nicely giving the top a nice crisp. Will definitely make again!

    • Hi India, I’m so glad you liked this cornbread. And making this into muffins with the cinnamon sugar on top sounds sooo good. Thank you for letting me know and for visiting CCC! Have a great rest of the week.

  2. What a creative cornbread recipe…looks and sounds delicious!

  3. Wow – this looks absolutely stunning! I love blueberry and corn bread together! YUM!

  4. This is really outstanding. I love anything with blueberry. The addition of cinnamon takes if over the top for me. Very cool that it’s a cornbread instead of a muffin. Very unique and makes me want to whip out my cast iron pan.

    • Hi Kim, cornbread and cast iron seem to go so well together. Thank you for stopping by!

  5. That looks so yummy!! Can’t wait to try it.

    Can you please tell me where I can find those pans??!!?? I kinda have a kitchenware obsession right now and I would love to add those to my collection.

    • Hi Angie, I got those cute iron pans at Sur La Table. I think they were about $12 each. They are made by Lodge Cast Iron (www.lodgemfg.com) and I just checked this site, they also have a “shop” option if you would like to get it online. Just look under “lodge tableware mini-servers”. They have so many cute little cast iron items. Thank you for stopping by!

  6. Your cornbread looks delish. Its just so pretty. I love the cinnamon sugar topping.

  7. Oh my gosh, that looks freaking fantastic. Next time we make cornbread, and we make it often, we’ll try it this way!

  8. Whoa, this is such a creative recipe! I’ve never seen or thought of anything like this. Pinned it for later!!
