Blueberry Breakfast Bake
I want to make this Blueberry Breakfast Bake for Easter morning. But then again I don’t think I can wait....it just looks too good. Total Time to prepare and cook is approximately 50 minutes. Makes 12-16 pieces.
I’m having my first giveaway on April 1. It a cake decorating set. All you have to do is select the giveaway link in the home bar and answer the question. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on April 6th.
Zest from one lemon
1/2 cup or 1 stick of unsalted butter, room temperature
1 egg, room temperature
1 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 + 1/4 cups Flour, divided
2 teaspoons Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
2 cups Blueberries
1/2 cup Buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 350F. In your standard mixer bowl add in the butter, lemon zest and 1 cup of sugar. Blend until fluffy. Add in the egg and the vanilla extract and beat to combine. In a bowl add the blueberries and 1/4 cup flour. In another bowl mix together the 2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt. Add 1/2 of the flour mixture to the batter use a spatula to incorporate. Add all the buttermilk and the remaining flour stir until all the flour is absorbed. Fold in the blueberries, discard excess flour from the blueberries bowl.
Grease an 8” or 9” baking dish either by a nonstick cooking spray or with butter. If you have parchment paper line the dish on top of the butter. Pour in the batter and spread it evenly. Sprinkle the 1 tablespoon of sugar on top. Bake 35-45 minutes for a 9” baking dish or 40-45 minutes for an 8” baking dish. Check with a toothpick for doneness. If necessary return it to the oven. Let cool 15 minutes before serving. Yum Yum!
PS: If you want to make this the night before just use a piece of plastic wrap to cover the baking dish with the batter and refrigerate. In the morning let the batter sit out at room temperature for 30 minute, then sprinkle the sugar on top and bake according to the instructions above. It may take longer to cook, because it was refrigerated.
