Here's a quick-and-easy summertime classic. The shortcake layer in this Lemon-Berry Shortcake recipe is tender and not overly sweet. Add some blueberries to the top for an extra-pretty finish to patriotic celebrations. —Meryl Herr, Overland Park, Kansas

For 1bigdog6767 I think you can use Equal or I know there is another product whose name I cannot remember, sorry - maybe another viewer knows, but it is a sugar substitute made for cooking/baking. I have seen it at Ralphs (Krogers) supermarkets, Good luck

Great and easy recipe. It does not over power you but it does satisfy you. If you don't have or want to buy buttermilk, just pour your milk into a measuring cup and add 1 tea of white vinegar. Let sit for 5 min and now you have buttermilk. You should use whole milk. This took at least 45-50 min to bake.

This is our favorite strawberry dessert. I've made it several times every year for a long time and it gets lots of compliments.

This is a very simple dessert recipe that my family really enjoys. I love the extra tang the buttermilk adds to this cake. This really highlights the lemon flavor. You can't beat the combination of lemon and strawberries. YUM! It really reminds you of summer all year round.
