Blueberry Lemon Buttermilk Cake

While I was at Bob and the Boys Farm Market this week, I picked up some beautiful blueberries and lemons. I just love the taste of lemon zest when it’s added to a blueberries in a recipe…so fresh…and…zesty. πŸ˜‰ So what could be better than the two combined…in a cake…that you can eat for breakfast!

I also picked up some sunflowers. Bob and the Boys frequently sells fresh-cut seasonal flowers, that I just can’t seem to stop myself from buying. What a beautiful summer flower to have on your table! They bring me a lot of joy.

This cake took no time to mix up and makes a perfect size pan for overnight guests or to invite someone over a for a coffee and cake on the porch.

It’s really nice served fresh out of the oven, but also will keep for a day or two. Blueberries and lemon…tastes like summer.
