Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake

I found this recipe via Pinterest - I cannot resist a breakfast cake. It's one of those things that makes me completely happy to get up in the morning and eat! This was such a good recipe - it had the buttermilk and blueberries and the ever-so-slight hint of lemon in it too.

What you need:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest or more
  • 7/8 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temp
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
Cream butter with 7/8 cup sugar and lemon zest until light and fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla, beat until combined.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Toss blueberries with 1/4 cup flour.

Add flour to the batter, little by little, alternating with buttermilk.
 Fold in blueberries.

Grease a 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread batter into pan.
Sprinkle batter with 1 tbsp. sugar.
Bake for 35 minutes at preheated 350* oven.

Blueberries and lemon are one of my favorite combinations. This is a must try.
