Baked Berries with Lemon Curd and Coconut Topped with Homemade Whipped Cream
We had friends over for dinner and I wanted to make a light and tasty dessert with what I had on hand. I decided to toss together some strawberries, raspberries and blueberries with some warm lemon curd and coconut. I baked the mixture then served it warm with homemade whipped cream. This dessert was wonderful – light, tart, sweet, and creamy. It was great on it’s own or it would be wonderful over pound cake too. It was a big hit with all of us, especially my daughter, who LOVED it!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray).
Toss the sliced strawberries together with the blueberries, and raspberries into a large bowl. Heat the lemon curd in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Drizzle on the berries then toss to coat them evenly. Pour into the prepared baking dish then sprinkle with coconut.
Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool.
While the berries are baking, pour the heavy cream into a bowl along with the powdered sugar and vanilla. Using a beater, mix on high until the whipping cream is thick and fluffy.
Spoon the berries into small bowls then top with whipped cream. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
