Preparation time: 15 mins

Cooking time: 40 mins

Serving: 6-8


  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons melted brown butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, chopped into 1/2-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 6 dark plums, cored and chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 2 cups blackberries
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • Ice cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh mint


  1. In a large bowl, lightly mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, vanilla extract, brown butter, egg and buttermilk, until smooth.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  3. Fill a large pot halfway with water and place it onto the stove to boil. Add in the sweet potatoes and cook for 5-8 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain the cooked sweet potatoes and set them aside.
  4. Place a large ovenproof pan with 2 tablespoons of butter onto the stove over medium heat. Add in the cooked sweet potatoes, plums, blackberries, lemon zest and juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, brown sugar and maple syrup. Once the fruit begins to simmer, cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  5. Pour the cornbread batter on top of the fruit, then scatter on the remaining butter and turbinado sugar. Place into the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
  6. Once finished baking, let cool for 15-20 minutes. Serve in individual bowls and top with ice cream, whipped cream, and fresh mint, if using.
