I swear buttermilk is magic. It appears to turn everything into gold: super-moist, super-delicious gold.
This morning I woke up wanting a simple, summery, cake-like-but-not-dessert-like breakfast treat. One of Ben’s chums had crashed correct correct here final night, and I idea it merely suitable to deal with him to a authentic breakfast. In different words, I was yearning sugar and carbs. The reality is I’ve been yearning sugar and carbs and a cake like this for months. But seriously, who doesn’t want a good, seasonal, berry cake recipe of their morning-treat repertoire?
Nobody. And I assume I’ve discovered the recipe that matches the bill. On an antique photocopied sheet of paper in my mother’s hand writing, I spotted a note: “Baby Boy’s Favorite.” Oh Baby Boy. Baby Boy is my young brother, my parents’ favourite child, and one in every of essentially some of the foremost satisfying of us to cook dinner for. If it was Baby Boy’s favourite cake, it’s going to quickly be mine, too. This cake is delectable! I assume you’ll like it, too.

This cake is a long-time household favorite. My mom made it for my siblings and me whilst we have been young, and each time I pull it out of the oven, clichè simply due to the fact it sounds, I am reminded of summer time mornings in my childhood kitchen. It’s simple, adaptable, and make aheadable

(If you like baking, you’ll love this no-knead bread.)
½ cup (8 tablespoons | four oz | 113 g ) unsalted butter, room temperature
zest from 1 big lemon
1 cup (214 g) sugar (set apart 1 tablespoon for sprinkling)
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups (256 g) all-purpose flour (set apart 1/4 cup of this to toss with the blueberries)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt (I like 1.25 tsp)
2 cups contemporary blueberries, picked over
½ cup buttermilk, see FAQs below
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Using a stand mixer or handheld mixer, cream the butter with the lemon zest and the 1 cup minus 1 tablespoon of sugar till pale and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla and beat till combined. Meanwhile, toss the blueberries with ¼ cup of flour, then whisk collectively the rest flour, baking powder and salt.
Add half of the flour combination to the batter, and stir with spatula to incorporate. Add all the buttermilk. Stir. Add remaining flour, and stir till flour is absorbed. Fold within the blueberries. (Leave extra flour from the blueberry bowl behind.)
Grease an 8- or 9-inch sq. baking pan (or anything similar—I choose this 8-inch pan simply due to the fact I just like the thicker pieces) with butter or coat with non-stick spray. If you’ve got parchment paper on hand, line the pan with parchment on higher of the butter. Spread the batter into the pan. Sprinkle the batter with the rest tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes — a 9-inch pan can be achieved in nearer to 35 minutes; an 8-inch pan typically wants 40 to 45 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness. If necessary, return pan to oven for a pair of extra minutes. (Note: Baking for as lengthy as 10 minutes extra may be necessary, especially if you’re utilizing a smaller pan equivalent to an 8×8-inch.) Let cool at the very least 15 minutes earlier than serving.
Can this be made forward of time? Yes. Prepare the batter, unfold it into the ready baking pan, disguise it with plastic wrap, and shop within the fridge. In the morning, if time permits, convey it to room temperature for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the sugar, then bake as directed. It may want extra time if the batter was refrigerated.
Can this be doubled? Yes. Bake it in a 9×13-inch pan … like this pan from Pyrex. Increase the baking time but start checking on the 35 minute mark.
What if I don’t have buttermilk? Use 2% or complete milk or make your personal buttermilk: location 2 teaspoons of vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup. Fill cup with milk till it reaches the 1/2-cup line. Let stand for five minutes. Use as directed.
Can this be made gluten free? Yes. I like Cup4Cup and King Arthur Flour gluten-free flour mixes, but use no matter you like, preserving in thoughts that each one gluten-free flours take up liquid differently, so you’ll ought to regulate to get the batter to the correct consistency.
Should the batter be thick? Yes. As with all baking, I incredibly suggest utilizing a scale to degree the flour. I actually have this one, which expenses underneath $11.
Can I bake this into muffins? Yes. Follow the baking directions in this post.
Can I use frozen berries? Yes. No ought to thaw.
What different fruit ought to I use? Really any contemporary fruit or berries. Around the winter holidays, I make this cranberry-orange buttermilk breakfast cake.
