What I posted one year ago on this day: Baked Salmon
I have been eying this recipe on Pinterest and finally I decided to make it! My co worker Melissa loves Blue Berries so she was the reason I made this cake! Better my co workers eat the cake then me eating it all myself!
½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tsp. lemon zest or more — zest from 1 large lemon
7/8 cup* + 1 tablespoon sugar**
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
½ cup buttermilk
* 7/8 cup = 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons
** This 1 tablespoon is for sprinkling on top
1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cream butter with lemon zest and 7/8 cup of the sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add the egg and vanilla
and beat until combined.
Meanwhile, toss the blueberries with ¼ cup of flour,
then whisk together the remaining flour,
3. Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time,
alternating with the buttermilk. Fold in the blueberries.
4. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan (or something similar) with butter or coat with non-stick spray. Spread batter into pan.
Sprinkle batter with remaining tablespoon of sugar.
Bake for 35 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness. If necessary, return pan to oven for a couple of more minutes. (Note: Baking for as long as 10 minutes more might be necessary.) Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
