The way I would describe this is a cross between a blueberry muffin and sweet Southern cornbread, with the cornbread flavor dominating. It was very moist, a little crumbly, and the fresh blueberries burst with sweetness. I found it a little salty, so next time, I'll cut it to 1/2 tsp. This is definitely "outside the box," but we enjoyed it.

fabulous - only mods - 1/2 tsp salt, and substituted 1/2 cup unsweetened applesause and 2 TBL oil for the the 1/2 cup oil.

Being British and therefore having no idea what cornmeal was (having only read about it in American children's literature) I had no idea what to think of this recipe when I found it, but I'm SO glad I tried it! The combination of milk and cornmeal adds a whole new dimension of both texture and flavour to the cake (and now I know why you Americans call it 'bread' and not 'cake'... it's much less sweet than a lot of other recipes, good for those with more of a savoury tooth). The only thing I wish I'd done differently was bake it for 35 mins - 30 mins wasn't quite enough: so watch that tooth pick like a hawk!

Used frozen blueberries, Splenda and only 1/2 teasp salt. Loved it!

This recipe is perfect and easy to remember. It says to fold the blueberries into the batter but nothing is wrong with mixing/ mashing the berries in the batter. Also, don't cook it until the toothpick comes out completely dry; carry-over cooking will cause the cornbread to overcook if it's not properly timed.

This was fantastic! I made it exactly according to the directions, and I had to stop myself from eating half the pan. I did use fresh blueberries, which I think makes a difference. Next time I will try it with a little less salt, but I don't want to mess too much with a good thing.
