Place  blueberries, sugar, flour and lemon zest in a small bowl and toss until combined. Transfer blueberry mixture to greased baking dish and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Use your fingers to work the lemon butter into flour mixture until it forms coarse pea sized crumb.

Carefully drop moistened dough over blueberries in the baking dish. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons of demerara sugar on top.
