Time Needed: 1 hour
Level of difficulty: easy
Materials needed: 1 t lemon juice, 1/3 c milk, 1/4 c butter, 3/4 c sugar, 1 egg, 1 t lemon extract, 1 1/2 c flour, 2 t baking powder, 1/2 t salt, 2 c blueberries, 2 T butter, 1/4 c sugar, 1 T lemon juice
Directions: Preheat oven to 450. Stir lemon juice and milk together and set aside. Stir together butter, sugar, egg, and lemon extract. Then add milk mixture, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just moist. Gently stir in blueberries. Transfer to a greased 8x8 pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the cake tests done. Spread glaze (recipe below) over the top of the cake and bake another 5 minutes. Watch carefully to ensure it doesn't bubble over. For the glaze, combine the extra butter, sugar, and lemon juice and microwave just until melted and smooth.
Don't be scared by all the glaze still left in the corners of the pan in this picture. This was snapped right after I pulled it from the oven. In another 2 minutes, the glaze had been absorbed.
Thanks, Tiare, for this wonderful family favorite from your home. It'll be added as a favorite in ours as well. And thanks, Richard, for requesting it!
