2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons lemon zest

3/4 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 tablespoons canola oil

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


3 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a dry skillet, toast walnuts over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes.

3. In a large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk to combine.

4. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, lemon zest, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, melted butter and oil. Whisk just to combine.

5. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add liquid ingredients and mix gently just to combine; do not over-mix. Gently fold in walnuts and blueberries.
