Nutrition Profile:



  • 5 cups assorted berries, such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and/or quartered strawberries

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

  • teaspoon salt


  • ½ cup whole-wheat flour

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup medium-grind yellow cornmeal

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup buttermilk

  • ¼ cup canola oil

  • 1 large egg

  • Unsweetened whipped cream (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. To prepare filling: Stir together berries, 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, orange zest, orange juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Spoon into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet.

  3. To prepare topping: Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl until combined. Whisk buttermilk, oil and egg together in a small bowl. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir gently until just combined.

  4. Spoon 8 (scant 1/4-cup) portions of the batter evenly over the berries in the skillet. Place the skillet on a baking sheet.

  5. Bake until the berries are bubbly, the juices are thickened, the topping is golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the center of the topping comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
