How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar.
  • In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter; pour over flour mixture, whisking to combine.
  • In a 10-inch skillet (preferably cast-iron), heat remaining tablespoon butter in the oven until melted and skillet is hot, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from oven; swirl to coat bottom of pan.
  • Pour batter into skillet; scatter blackberries on top, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup sugar.
  • Bake, with a baking sheet on rack below (to catch any drips), until top is evenly browned, 45 to 50 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly, about 30 minutes.
  • Run a knife around the edge to loosen; cut into 8 wedges.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • ~~~~You can substitute an equal amount of fresh blueberries for the blackberries; be sure to rinse and dry them thoroughly before scattering over the batter.~~~~

    I had cornmeal cake recently and it was fabulous. The addition of blackberries would just make it better.
