Blueberry Walnut Cake



5 Tbl Butter

3/4 Cup Sugar

2/3 Cup Buttermilk

2 Eggs

2 T Grated Orange Or Lemon Rind

1-1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 Tsp Almond Extract

1 Tsp Baking Powder

1/4 Tsp Baking Soda

1-1/2 Cup Flour

2 Cup Fresh Or Frozen Blueberries

1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9" square pan.

Place butter in a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until butter melts. Add sugar, stir with whisk. Add eggs, stir with whisk. Stir in buttermilk, orange rind, baking powder, salt, vanilla extract, almond extract, and baking soda. Add flour; stir until just blended. Stir in blueberries and nuts. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan and spread evenly.

Bake for about 45 minutes or until lightly browned and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Keep your eye on this. It's fairly low in fat and sometimes cooks more quickly than you might expect.

Cool in pan for ten minutes then sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar.
