Recipe's preparation

    1. - Preheat oven to 160° and grease a 22cm cake tin or bundt tin with butter.
    2. - Combine flour, baking powder, salt in a bowl, and set aside for later.
    3. - Mill sugar and lemon peel 10 sec/speed 9.
    4. - Add butter, mix 2 min/speed 4 until light and fluffy.
    5. - While blades are still turning, add eggs through top, and continue to mix until well combined - approx 30 seconds.
    6. - Add Lemon Juice, Vanilla extract, and half the Buttermilk, as well as half the flour mixture, and mix speed 4 untill you see it is combining. With the blades still turning, add the remaining buttermilk and flour mixture and continue to mix until the mixture is a smooth batter. 
    7. - Add Blueberries in and fold through the batter with your spatula
    8. - Spoon batter into cake tin. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until cake is golden, and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
    9. - Allow to rest in the tin for 15 minutes, then gently tip it onto a wire cake rack to cool. 
  1. Icing
    1. - For the icing, first mill lemon peel and sugar 10 seconds/ speed 9.
    2. - Add melted butter, salt, lemon juice, and milk in bowl. Whisk speed 3-4 until the ingredients are incorporated well (approx 30 sec).

I have put approximate mixing times, as these will depend on the temperature of your ingredients - I find room temperature ingredients (with the butter softened) work best, and cold ingredients (eggs/butter) tend to take longer to make a smooth batter - you can keep an eye on the consistency of your mixture through your MC, and adjust your mixing time accordingly.
