Winter Morning Goodness!

I love Pinterest! I know that lots of people enjoy browsing around on it and picking up great decorating, crafting, baking, fashion and a tonne of other ideas! One of the things I love most is the recipes that people share on it. I found a recipe recently for Blueberry Breakfast Cake and decided I would give it a try.

I have to say that the recipe turned out to be as delicious as it looked in the photo and I guarantee I will be adding it to our list of family favorites. The batter is quite thick and when it bakes you end up with these beautifully golden brown hills and valleys that are coated with a sprinkle of sugar and are truly yummy!

Here is the recipe if you would like to give it a try :) You won't be disappointed!

Blueberry Breakfast Cake
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tsp. lemon zest or more (optional)
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons 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
1 Tbsp. sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter with lemon zest and 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Meanwhile, toss the blueberries with 1/4 cup of the 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 with butter or coat with non-stick spray. Spread batter into pan. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. sugar. Bake for 35 minutes. Insert a toothpick to see if it is done. Let cool at least 15 minutes. Enjoy!
