  1. Blueberry Brown Sugar Buttermilk Cake

  2. For a lemon version, substitute white sugar for the brown, and add the grated zest of a lemon when you beat the butter and sugar together.

  3. 1/4 cup butter, softened

  4. 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  5. 1 large egg

  6. 1 tsp vanilla

  7. 1 cup flour

  8. 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  9. 1/2 tsp. baking soda

  10. 1/4 tsp. salt

  11. 1/2 cup well-shaken buttermilk

  12. 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen

  13. coarse sugar, for sprinkling (totally optional)

  14. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. In a medium bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar for a minute or two, until fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.

  15. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add half to the butter mixture and stir just until blended; add the buttermilk in the same way, then the rest of the flour mixture. Spread the batter into a 9" pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray, and scatter with blueberries. If you like, sprinkle with coarse sugar.

  16. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and springy to the touch. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
