step-by-step directions We've Made Cooking As Easy As 1-2-3! printer friendly version 
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    Olive Oil
    3-4 ears Corn (shucked)
    Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush the Corn with Olive Oil and grill for 2-3 minutes per side, until Corn is lightly charred in places.
  • 3
    Stand the Corn and carefully cut off the Kernels, reserving the Kernels and any liquid.
  • 4
    1 1/4 cups Buttermilk
    3 Eggs
    1/2 cup Maple Syrup
    2 cups Cornmeal
    1 cup All Purpose Flour
    4 teaspoon Baking Powder
    Pinch Salt
    1/2 cup Cold Unsalted Butter (cut in 1/2-inch cubes)
    Grilled Corn Kernels
    In a large bowl, whisk together the Buttermilk, Eggs, and Maple Syrup. In a large food processor, combine the Cornmeal, Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt, pulsing a few times to mix. Add the Butter and Corn Kernels and pulse until Corn and Butter are coarsely chopped. Stir this dry mixture into the wet mixture and transfer to a lightly Oiled 9x9 baking dish.
  • 5
    Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, until golden and a cake tester comes out clean. Rest 20 minutes before cutting.
  • 6
    6 slices Bacon
    Meanwhile, arrange the Bacon on a wire rack lined baking sheet. Cook for 10-15 minutes, until crispy. Once cooled, crumble into small bits.
  • 7
    If desired, warm the slices of Cornbread on the grill. Drizzle compote over Cornbread and garnish with crumbled Bacon.
  • 8
    1 pint Fresh Blackberries
    4 tablespoons Honey
    Zest of 1 Lemon
    1/2 cup Water (plus more if needed)
    For the Blackberry Compote: Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepot, and bring to a boil. Simmer 10 minutes, just until Blackberries begin to break down slightly.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Brush corn with olive oil and GRILL for 2-3 minutes per side, until corn is lightly charred in places
    2. Make sure to use cold butter to keep the cornbread flakey.
    3. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, until golden and cake tester comes out clean
    4. If using a completely oven safe dish, make the blackberry compote right on the grill!
