Growing up in Oklahoma, cornbread was a regular staple in our house, at my grandmas house, at my great grandmas house, pretty much everyone in the fam was serving up cornbread as a side dish with everything from chili to roast!

For years I’ve been whipping up this Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread recipe to go with just about everything, but today I’m putting a twist on my classic cornbread recipe!

I love the combination of blackberries and peppers! In the past, I’ve made Blackberry Jalapeno Margaritas and Blackberry Jalapeno Pulled Pork Tacos with Blackberry Jalapeno Guacamole, of course!

Recently I was introduced to Blackberry Serrano Yogurt from Noosa. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s just so crazy that it works!

After trying the yogurt, I was hooked on creating a new Blackberry Serrano recipe. I decided to try it out in this cornbread recipe and O-M-G am I glad I did!

It took me a couple of attempts to perfect the blackberry serrano ratio, but I ended up with a delicious recipe that I’m kind of obsessed with!

I’ve eaten it the last 3 mornings for breakfast topped with a little cinnamon butter! Oh yeah! That extra buttery sweetness on top totally adds the most perfect finishing touch to this scrumptious recipe!

If you want that extra buttery sweetness on top (let’s be honest, who could say no to that?!) add a little cinnamon sugar mix to soft butter and spread on top, SO GOOD!
