Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch cake pan. Set aside. Combine flour, baking powder and 1 teaspoon lemon zest in small bowl. Set aside.

Combine 1/4 cup butter and sugar in medium bowl; beat until creamy. Add egg; beat until well mixed. Stir in flour mixture alternately with milk until batter is thick and smooth. Gently stir in blueberries. Spread batter into prepared pan.
