Blueberry/Lemon Buttermilk Cake Anyone?

Don't you hate it when you're waiting at the doc's or at a hair appointment
 and you see a great recipe in a magazine,
but don't have pen or paper or ipad or iphone to jot it down? 
Guess what, I have solved that problem! 
 I  snag the mag!
[Actually, I run home and do an internet search to find the recipe.]
But, seriously, the docs like people to take magazines -- 
 it gets some of those nasty germs out of their waiting rooms!


Is it cake or a muffin on steroids???
   Valerie Bertinelli had a couple of low-fat, low-cal recipes in one magazine recently that sounded good.
Valerie's (yes, we are on a first-name basis) blueberry cake
 looked so good,
that I made it the other day!
 
It kind of took a lot of work -- zesting a lemon?? 
Holy smokes -- what is this Top Chef??  
 And it took forever to bake (may need a larger pan) but it was worth it. 
The Hubs really liked it and in the interests of our diets
(even though it was low cal and low fat),
he took it to work with him.

Maddy and I liked it, but thought it might be better with chocolate chips instead
 of blueberries!! :) 
Everything is better with chocolate chips, you know!

Aren't you funny. I've actually pulled out my cell phone and snapped pictures of things in magazines at doctor's offices to try and remember to look them up later. My mother used to make a recipe very similar to this. I haven't thought about it in awhile. YUMMY. It reminds me of spring.

Ha! I saw the picture, read the title, and said, "Well, if it had chocolate chips instead of blueberries I'd be all over it!" Great minds...... ;)
