2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Mix in the sour cream, lemon juice, and lemon zest until combined.

Combine Dry Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, sift or whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Fold in Blueberries:
