Blueberry Lemon Tea Cake

I found this in an article on blueberry reicpes - I have not made it, but it looked very good, and it is very low in fat. To tell you the truth, I'm unsure what they mean by "1 large and 1 tsp grated lemon zest", maybe 1 tablespoon & one teaspoon? That seems like a lot to me, so I'd just go with the one teaspoon only. This would be an ideal recipe for using up some of the frozen blueberries that you have in your freezer. I'll bet that the lemon glaze on the top really gives it a zing! Let me know if you try it.
