Have you noticed a trend on my blog with blueberries? Ah, yeah. Tons of frozen ones in my freezer and tons of them in my fridge. This kind of stuff can keep me up at night worrying that they will go bad before I have a chance to do something with them. Yeah a little obsessive. The more I worry about the economy the more pack rattish and obsessive I get. Need to let that go.

my recipe

1 1/4 c sugar
1/3 cup butter, room temp
2 eggs
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
zest of a lemon
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 325 F for glass/ 350F for metal. Grease desired pan.

Cream butter and add in sugar. Blend until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Add almond extract. Add zest and lemon juice.

Combine dry ingredients in another bowl. Add to egg mixture alternately with buttermilk. Pour into prepared pans.
