2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, at room temperature
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter with the granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Fold in the flour mixture, mixing well until evenly blended to a batter. Mix in the lemon rind. Spread half the batter into a greased 13x9x2 inch-baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the berries. Top with the remaining batter and sprinkle with the remaining berries. Bake until golden brown, 35-45 minutes.
Mix the confectioners sugar gradually into the lemon juice to make a smooth glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the warm coffee cake and allow it to set before serving, still warm or room temperature.
