Author Notes: I have recently come the realization that corn and blueberries are amazing together. They are as harmonious as peanut butter and jelly in my book. I recently made Thomas Keller's Blueberry cobbler which in itself is absolutely delicious but I thought what if I add corn and perhaps make the topping more like a corn bread topping and viola! The corny blueberry cobbler was born. I would serve this with dymnyno's corn ice cream or vanilla would work too. - singing_baker

- Place filling in a 11 inch square baking dish or a 9x13 baking dish. Dollop batter on top of filling leaving some space in between the dollops. (dollops should be about a 1/2 cup each). Sprinkle the top with sugar. Bake for about 40 minutes until the filling is bubbling and the top is golden brown. let rest for about 15 minutes before serving. I like to serve this dessert a la mode. enjoy!
