Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 2

    teaspoons lemon zest or to taste

  • 7/8

    cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1

    egg, room temperature

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 2

    cups flour (set aside 1/4 cup of this to toss with the blueberries)

  • 2

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2

    cups fresh blueberries

  • 1/2

    cup buttermilk

Directions

HOMEMADE BUTTERMILK: Place 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup. Fill cup with milk until it reaches the 1-cup line. Let stand for five minutes. Use only 1/2 cup of the prepared mixture for the recipe. CAKE: 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 1/4 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 to 45 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.
