This is nothing more than a giant blueberry muffin, but at least your guest can serve themselves the amount they like. I have to say this is a fluffy cake with just the right amount of blueberries and I would make it again for sure.

Buttermilk-Blueberry Breakfast Cake

(Adapted from Alexandra’s Kitchen)

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

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


*** To make 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.


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

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.
