For a tasty twist at dessert time, this special spring shortcake dessert has a bountiful berry layer on the bottom. The moist and tempting cake is a treat our family has savored for years. -Debra Falkiner, St. Charles, Missouri

Delicious! This turned out better than I expected and was the perfect summer dessert. It would be good with whipped topping or ice cream, but it is wonderful on its own! I will make this again and again. It is easy and great enough for company! I am going to try it with blueberries next time.
