A Blueberry "Coffee" Cake Recipe

Have I told you lately how much I still love my friend in the kitchen; Ms. Kitchen Aid?

She was free, remember? Swag Bucks and a little patience landed this pretty red thing on my doorstep last year.

My friend in the kitchen

Fresh Blueberries are everywhere right now. They are so yummy. I had a craving for some Coffee Cake yesterday and decided I'd make a Blueberry "Coffee" Cake for my morning breakfast today.

So Ms. Kitchen Aid some fresh blueberries and I, got to baking...

And can I just say that it turned out heavenly!

Like it was really hard not to eat the whole thing!

Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Here's my Recipe...

1 Egg
3 tsp. Lemon Zest
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
2 Cups Flour

Icing with a hint of Lemon:
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Milk

Wisk together and drizzle over warm Blueberry Cake.
Serves 6 (or more if they're smaller portions)
