Blackberry Cornbread Bucklebyjaneofmanytrade

WHO: Janeofmanytrade is a pastry chef, CIA graduate, blogger, bee-keeper, master gardener, marble-collector, and cookbook writer. WHAT: With a sweet, fruity addition and a generous amount of addictive crumbs, your favorite Southern side is about to become your favorite dessert. HOW: Drop tangy blackberries in cornbread batter and scatter with crumb topping. Then watch the cake rise, sink, and buckle in the oven. WHY WE LOVE IT: We didn't think perfectly tender cornbread could get any better. But once we tasted it punctuated with tart berries, spiced with cardamom, and finished with a buttery crumb, we quickly changed our minds.

Buttermilk is key -- that comes next and gets folded in, too.

When it's done, let it cool in the pan for a few minutes. It will be hard work, but be patient.
