Directions

1
PREHEAT OVEN TO 350F. GENEROUSLY SPRAY NON-STICK SPRAY IN A 12-CUP BUNDT PAN.
2
IN A MEDIUM BOWL, WHISK TOGETHER THE FLOUR AND BAKING POWDER. SET ASIDE. IN A LARGE BOWL WITH AN ELECTRIC MIXER, BEAT THE BUTTER, SUGARS AND SALT ON MEDIUM-HIGH SPEED UNTIL LIGHT AND FLUFFY, 2-3 MINUTES. ADD EGGS, ONE AT A TIME, BEATING AFTER EACH ADDITION. BEAT IN VANILLA AND LEMON EXTRACT. ON LOW SPEED, ADD THE DRY INGREDIENTS IN 3 BATCHES, ALTERNATING WITH THE BUTTERMILK, AND BEGINNING AND ENDING WITH THE FLOUR. BEAT JUST UNTIL FLOUR IS ABSORBED.
3
IN A BOWL, TOSS THE BLUEBERRIES AND LEMON ZEST WITH THE TSP OF FLOUR, AND FOLD INTO BATTER WITH SPATULA. SCRAPE THE BATTER INTO PAN AND SMOOTH THE TOP. BAKE FOR 1HR 5 MIN OR UNTIL WOOD PICK COMES OUT CLEAN. COOL IN PAN 20 MINUTES AND INVERT ON RACK AND COOL COMPLETELY.
4
GLAZE: IN A SMALL BOWL, WHISK THE LEMON JUICE AND CONFECTIONER'S SUGAR, ADDING SECOND TBSP GRADUALLY, SO THAT THE GLAZE IS JUST LIQUID ENOUGH TO POUR EASILY BUT STILL OPAQUE. SPOON THE GLAZE OVER COOLED CAKE, THEN ALLOW IT TO FIRM COMPLETELY, BOUT 30 MINUTES, BEFORE SERVING.

I am fine like an old poop I usually go to bed early and get up early. Didn't use to be that way, but anymore I watch TV in bed and usually fall asleep. Then I wake up at a ridiculous time like 2 or 3AM, and sometimes it takes me awhile to fall back to sleep. Guess the solution is not watch tv in bed, but it's one of my fav things to do.
