Blueberry Corn Bread Cobbler with Orange Buttermilk Ice Cream

brown butter filling

  • 2 pints fresh Georgia blueberries
  • 2 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, divided
  • 3/4 cup stone-ground plain white cornmeal
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a heavy saucepan, stir the milk, 1/3-cup sugar, 4 tablespoons of butter and salt. Bring to a boil. Slowly whisk in the cornmeal. Cook, stirring until mixture is thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the remaining 3 tablespoons butter until fluffy. Add the egg yolks one at a time, whisking until incorporated. Fold cornmeal mixture into butter-and-yolk mixture. In a clean stainless steel or glass bowl, whip the whites either by hand or with a mixer until medium peaks form. Fold into cornmeal batter.

Spread Georgia blueberries into a 9 by 13-inch baking dish and pour the cornmeal mixture over them. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Bake until the topping is just set, about 50 minutes. Cool about 10 minutes before serving (the juice thickens as it cools).
