Blueberry Yumminess!

I thought I would share a great recipe that I have used twice in the past two days.  No, it has not been all for me! ;)  The only name I could think to describe it is "blueberry yumminess"...

Ingredients:

(Serves 6-8)
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
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
½ cup buttermilk

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cream butter with lemon zest and 7/8 cup
of the sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Meanwhile, toss
the blueberries with ¼ cup of flour, then whisk together the remaining
flour, baking powder and salt.
3. Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time, alternating
with the buttermilk. Fold in the blueberries.
4. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan (or something similar) with
butter or coat with non-stick spray. Spread batter into pan. Sprinkle
batter with remaining tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 35 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.
