Johnny Bluecake (Blue Cornbread)
This is my favourite cornbread. I've been making it
for many years, and this year decided to add blueberries
to it - a perfect combination!
It keeps very well - up to a week refrigerated - and
toasts beautifully. Great as a dinner accompaniment
or as breakfast or snack with honey or jam and/or cheese.

All versions keep well and toast well.
