Lemon Blueberry Cake

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. lemon zest
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1/2 cup milk 
1 cup blueberries tossed in 1 Tbs. flour


2 Tbs. melted butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar *see note
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix dry ingredients and set aside.
Blend butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, zest and lemon juice until well combined.
Gently alternate dry ingredients and milk and stop as soon as it's combined

Toss blueberries in the 1Tbs. of  flour and fold into batter.

Pour into greased 8" pan and bake at 350 for 40-50 min. Test by inserting knife in center and comes out clean.
Cool then glaze. Let it sit for the glaze to soak in.

Makes 8"  one layer cake. 

*Note: I have made the glaze with granulated sugar when I have run out of powdered and it's just as delicious, just different texture.

I hope you enjoy this refreshing dessert...
