Mixed Berry Shortcake

My neighbor Cheryl game me some mini angel food cakes. We were in the mood for a dessert so I used what fruit I had (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries & blueberries) and made a shortcake with homemade whipped topping.  It was really easy to make and so delicious. Thanks Cheryl!

  • 1-2 cups of strawberries, sliced
  • 1-2 cups of red raspberries
  • 1-2 cups of blackberries
  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 1-2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest, chopped finely

Combine all ingedients (use frozen fruits if you don’t have fresh) in a bowl & mix thoroughly. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

  • Mini angel food cakes
  • Homemade whipped cream (recipe below)

Whipped Cream

  • 1 pint of whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients with a hand blender for 5-7 minutes until fluffy. Spoon fruit over cakes & top with whipped cream. Enjoy.
