    Stephanie’s Blueberry B'fast Cake

    Source of Recipe

    Our friend, Stephanie Burdett

    Recipe Introduction

    Stephanie made this fantastic breakfast cake during our visit in July 2012. The tang of the buttermilk goes really well with the blueberries.

    List of Ingredients

    1/2 cup sweet 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
    1/2 cup buttermilk

    * 7/8 cup = 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons
    ** This 1 tablespoon is for sprinkling on top


    Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cream butter with lemon zest and 7/8 cup of the sugar until light and fluffy.

    Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Meanwhile, toss the blueberries with ¼ cup of flour, then whisk together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt.

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

    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.

    Serves 6-8.
