Blueberry Shortcakes with Vanilla Lemon Cream

Urban Recipes

By Christina Jeffrey

Summer is the perfect time to indulge in light beautiful flavourful desserts.  What better then the combination of blueberries and Vanilla Lemon cream.

With Strawberry shortcake in June, Blackberry shortcake in April, Blueberry shortcake is a must in August! A beautiful, light, airy dessert that is so perfect for any summer weekend. I love any shortcake, so this takes me back to my childhood. Growing up in my teens, on the east coast in New Brunswick, there were always rolling fields of blueberries to look forward to every August. Each summer, we looked forward to taking a road trip to a small fruit stand called McKay's Farmstand, along highway 1 in Pennfield towards St. Andrews, New Brunswick, to have their unforgettable Blueberry Shortcake. The taste of plump blueberries, on top of a warm-soft flaky biscuit, layered with whip cream, was so delightful!

It's is such a fond memory I created a signature Blueberry Vanilla Lemon Cream Shortcake recipe. Place these beautiful plump blueberries and light-airy vanilla lemon cream on top of one of our fluffy sweet original buttery scones. You will have the makings of a fantastic summer dessert. This dessert captures the essence of summer and all the dreams and hopes that go along with it. If you make this Blueberry Vanilla Lemon Cream Shortcake recipe, please tag me on social media.
