Blueberry Cornbread with Maple Buttercream

Liz Hall shows up at every get-together - dinners, birthday parties, holidays - with a cake. The cornbread competition was no exception: She tweaked a traditional recipe and made it more of a dessert. Her blueberry cornbread cake topped with maple buttercream took first place in the nontraditional category. Now, whenever there's a party, she says, "everyone always asks me to bring the award-winning cornbread."

Ingredients

For the cornbread: 

For the frosting:

Directions

  1. Make the cornbread: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Whisk the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk the cornmeal, flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Add the cornmeal mixture to the egg mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until just incorporated. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely before frosting.
  3. Make the frosting: Beat the butter in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar in batches, alternating with the milk; continue beating until smooth. Add the maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg to taste. Add the remaining 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar if necessary to reach a spreadable consistency. Spread on the cornbread.
