  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.

  3. Rinse blueberries and drain very well. Transfer to a medium bowl and add 1 tablespoon of the flour mixture and toss to coat. Set aside.

  4. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together sugar, lemon zest, and butter until the mixture is pale and fluffy.

  5. Mix in eggs one at a time and blend in vanilla.

  6. Add ⅓ of the flour mixture and mix just until combined. Mix in ½ of the sour cream and lemon juice and mix just until combined. Repeat the process once more.

  7. Mix in the last ⅓ of the flour mixture then remove the bowl from the stand mixer and gently fold in blueberries.

  8. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan, spread evenly, and bake for about 50 to 60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a moist crumb.

  9. Let cool for about 5 minutes, then run a knife around edges to ensure loaf has loosened then invert onto a wire rack. Cool on a rack for about 30 minutes, then finish cooling in an airtight container.
