  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon finely grated
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter (softened. Equals 1 stick of butter.)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup blueberries (with 2 TBLS flour)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a 9" x 5" loaf pan with cooking spray. Line with parchment paper with the paper hanging over the sides.
  • In a small bowl, pour in buttermilk, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat the butter and sugar.
  • Add 1 egg at a time, mixing well in between each egg.
  • While mixing the batter on low speed, add the flour mixture and then the buttermilk mixture until batter is smooth. Do not over mix.
  • In a small bowl toss the blueberries with about 2 tablespoons of flour to coat them. (This prevents the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the cake.)
  • Stir in the flour-covered blueberries.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Using a spatula spread the batter so it is spread out evenly in the pan.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool completely.
  • Prepare the glaze by mixing 2 cups powdered sugar with 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Pour over the top and sides of the cooled cake.
