Blueberry Breakfast Bake


Happy Sunday to you!  I don't know about you, but I love lazy Sundays.  I can't wait to have all my Sunday's with Tall Tan Man.  Have I mentioned that living apart while married is waaay more sucky than when we were just dating? Ugh.  Well, I have been trying to keep myself busy so I have done some major spring cleaning and closet purging.  I bet next fall I am going to wonder where all my clothes went... :) Last week I saw this {Blueberry Breakfast Bake} on pinterest, and it looked super yummy.  I can now confirm that it tasted super yummy!

Blueberry Breakfast Bake
Source: Quick and Easy Recipes and Alexandra Cooks

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tsp lemon zest {1 large lemon}
7/8 cup* {+1 tablespoon sugar for top}
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour {+2-3 tbsp to toss with the blueberries}
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups fresh blueberries

1/2 cup buttermilk

*7/8 = 3/4 cup + 2 TBSP 

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and grease a 9 by 9 pan.  

2.  Combine butter, lemon zest, and 7/8 cup of the sugar until light, beautiful, and fluffy.

2. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
3.  Toss the blueberries with 2-3 TBSPs cup of flour. In another bowl mix together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt.
4. First only add half of the flour mixture to the batter and alternate with the buttermilk. Once well combined, gently fold in the blueberries.
5.  Using a spatula spread batter into pan. You will notice that batter is really thick {almost like cookie dough}.  Do not fret, it will spread fine! Sprinkle batter with tablespoon of sugar.
  
6. Bake for 40 minutes. Be sure to test with a toothpick to make sure it is done. You might need to cover with foil and bake for a little bit longer. :) Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.



This week I am going to try to remember and be thankful for all that Jesus has done for me.  For giving me grace and mercy that I absolutely don't deserve.  Hope ya'll try to do the same this week!
