“The hallmark of a cobbler is a biscuit topping baked right on top of the fruit. Here blueberries (or blackberries) and corn make a fun match. The sunny cornmeal batter comes together quickly and looks gorgeous on top of the deep-dark fruit filling. We like the rustic texture of medium- or coarse-ground cornmeal, but any type works.”


    • Filling
    • 4 cups blueberries or blackberries (about 1¼ pounds), fresh or frozen
    • ¼ cup sugar
    • 1 tablespoon white whole-wheat flour (see Note)
    • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • Topping
    • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour
    • ¾ cup cornmeal, preferably medium- or coarse-ground
    • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
    • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 1 large egg yolk
    • ½ cup buttermilk
    • ¼ cup canola oil
    • 3 tablespoons sugar
    • ½ cup corn kernels, fresh, frozen (thawed) or canned (well-drained)


  • 1 Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • 2 To prepare filling: Combine berries, ¼ cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, lemon zest and lemon juice in a large bowl. (If using frozen fruit, let stand for about 30 minutes, stirring
  • 3 occasionally, to thaw the fruit before transferring to the baking dish.) Transfer to a 9-inch shallow glass or ceramic baking dish.
  • 4 To prepare topping: Whisk 1 cup flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl until well blended. Whisk egg yolk, buttermilk, oil and 3 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to blend. Fold in corn.
  • 5 Evenly spoon the batter on top of the berry mixture; the fruit will be almost completely covered with batter. Place the baking dish on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake until the berries are bubbly, the topping is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the topping comes out clean, 35 to 50 minutes. Let cool for about 20 minutes before serving.
  • Note: White whole-wheat flour, made from a special variety of white wheat, is light in color and flavor but has the same nutritional properties as regular whole-wheat flour. It is available at large ­supermarkets and natural-foods stores and online at or Store it in the freezer.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
