1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°F. Oil and line your pan(s). Stir together ricotta, sugar, eggs, butter, vanilla, lemon zest, and juice. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and add to the ricotta mixture and mix until just combined. Spread into prepared pan(s) and top with the fresh blueberries.
For the topping, stir together the dry ingredients. Add the melted butter and mix by hand until evenly combined into lumps. Sprinkle over the cake. Bake for about 40 - 45 minutes, until a tester inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in the pan.
Yields 2 x 8"x 8" square cake pan, or 1 x 9"x13" pan.
