Strawberry Lemon Shortcakes Recipe

Shortcakes:

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking tray with parchment.

Combine flour, SPLENDA® Granulated, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add lemon zest and grated ginger and stir. Cut cold butter into small pieces and cut into flour mixture until a rough, crumbly texture form. Stir in milk and blend until pastry forms a ball.

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Flatten dough and fold over in half and repeat (this builds a lovely flakiness). Shape dough into a circle and cut into 6 wedges. Arrange shortcakes on baking tray and brush with milk.

Bake for 15 minutes until tops of shortcakes are a light, golden colour. Allow to cool before serving.

 
Filling:

For filling, whip cream to soft peaks and fold in sour cream, SPLENDA® Granulated and lemon zest.

Chill until ready to serve. For fruit, toss strawberries with SPLENDA® Granulated, lemon zest and fresh ginger and chill until ready to serve. 

To assemble, split a shortcake in half and place bottom half on a plate. Dollop with cream and top with 1/2 cup (125 mL) of strawberries. Top with other half of shortcake and repeat with remaining shortcakes. Serve immediately.
