However, this was going to be breakfast for the morning after a 1990s themed New Years Eve bash. Brandon had a scraggly mustache and I curled my bang. Was anything going to cross the line? Probably not.
1/2 cup of unsalted butter, room temp
zest from 1 large lemon
3/4 cup + 1 tbl sugar
1 tbl sugar (another one for spranklin')
1 egg, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups of flour (set 1/4 cup aside to toss with the blueberries)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen....just be sure to thaw!)
1/2 cup of butter milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter with lemon zest and 3/4 cup + 1 tbl of sugar together. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Meanwhile, toss the blueberries with 1/4 cup of flour. Whisk the remaining flour with the baking powder and salt. Alternate adding the flour mixture to the butter mixture with the buttermilk. Gently fold in blueberries.
Grease a 9 inch baking pan. Pour in the batter and sprinkle 1 tbl of sugar on top. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
