Ingredients
 

For the cornbread

  • 1 cup milk or nondairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup cornmeal, preferably medium grind
  • 1 cup Silvana’s Kitchen Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour or your favorite flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup corn kernels (about 2 ears corn), plus more for topping
  • ¼ cup coarsely-crushed corn flakes, plus more for topping

  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries
     


Instructions

1. Make the cornbread: Preheat the oven to 350° and place a 9-inch cast iron skillet inside to heat while you make the batter. In a small bowl, stir together the milk and vinegar. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in the milk mixture, eggs and oil until just blended; fold in the corn kernels and corn flakes.

2. Grease the bottom and sides of the hot skillet, then pour the batter into the prepared pan; bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Let cool before cutting.

3. Meanwhile, make the butter: In the bowl of a food processor, add the butter, honey, cinnamon, orange zest and a pinch of salt; pulse to combine. Add the blueberries until mashed and mostly combined. Scoop into a small bowl, cover, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
