  • sugar (small grain) - 2 tbsp
  • butter (chilled) - 30g
  • egg (small) - 1
  • cream - 1 1/2 tbsp
  • For the filling - Blueberry crush - 2-3 tbsp
  • Non dairy whipping cream - 1/2 cup
  • Edible glitter - 1 tsp

How to make Blueberry Shortcakes

  1. Sieve flour and baking powder.
  2. Add 1 1/2 tbsp sugar to it and save the rest for sprinkling later.
  3. Grate or chop the chilled butter into small piece.
  4. Gently rub the butter pieces into the flour mixture till you get a sand like texture.
  5. Beat the egg and add 1 tbsp of cream and mix.
  6. Pour this egg-cream mixture into the flour mixture and mix to get a soft dough. Add rest of the cream only if required.
  7. Preheat the oven to 200 C.
  8. While the oven is preheating, portion out the dough and roll to 2cm thick circles. Keep the rest of the dough covered
  9. With a cookie cutter (3.5") cut out circles.
  10. Place on a butter paper lined baking tray and sprinkle some sugar on the top.
  11. Bake at 200 C for about 15-20 mins till the short cakes are golden brown.
  12. While the short cakes are in the oven get the topping ready by whipping non dairy whipping cream to a firm consistency.
  13. Add the blueberry crush to the cream and just swirl a spoon through it so that you get a pattern of coloured and white cream.
  14. Once the short cakes come out of the oven cool them over a wire rack and pipe out the blueberry flavoured cream on top of it.
  15. Sprinkle some edible glitter to give it a glamorous touch.
  16. Enjoy with your friends.

My Tip:

When mixing the dough don't knead it, just gently mix. Don't let the dough get very wet so add half of the cream in the egg mixture and more while mixing the dough if you feel it is too dry and not binding together.
