Buttermilk-Blueberry Breakfast Cake....

 This is the second time I have made this tasty cake....

SO...I figured it was time to share with all of you...

Pretty straighforward...

Easy ingredients....

Super delicious...

Sort biscuit quality...but very moist and melt-in-your-mouth delicious....

  SO here goes...

1/2 cup unsalted temp

2 tsp. lemon zest or more...zest from 1 lemon..

7/8 cup + 1 tbsp sugar**[3/4 cup + 2tbsps for sprinkling on top]

1 temp

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups flour

2tsp baking powder

1 tsp kosher salt

2 cups fresh blueberries

3/4 cup buttermilk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Cream butter with lemon zest and 7/8 cup of the sugar until light and fluffy 

3. Add the egg and vanilla..beat until combined...

4. Toss the blueberries in 1/4 cup flour...then whisk together remaining flour, baking soda and salt  

5. Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time...alternating with the buttermilk...Fold in the Blueberries..

6. Grease a 9 inch square baking pan with butter or non-stick spray...spread batter into pan..sprinkle batter with remaining sugar...

7. Bake for 35 minutes...check with toothpick for doneness..note: baking for as long as 10 minutes more might be necessary ..let cool for 15 minutes..


 This cake is a real crowd-pleaser...

The lemon zest really adds a delicate flavor...

This is a must try...
