Berry Shortcake Recipe

I combined my mother's and mother-in-law's strawberry shortcake recipes to come up with the ultimate summer treat. —Barb Mohr, Green Bay, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Whipped cream, optional


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the strawberries, blueberries and 2 tablespoons sugar; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine milk and sour cream; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.
  • 3. Spread batter into a greased 9-in. pie plate (batter will be thick). Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 350° for 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes; cut into six wedges.
  • 4. To assemble, cut each wedge in half; place bottoms on dessert plates. Top each with berry mixture. Replace wedge tops. Garnish with whipped cream if desired. Yield: 6 servings.

"Absolute hit with everyone. We did put the berries through the food processor and added homemade whipped bream, the cake was great!"
