Diet Shortcake Recipe with strawberries & blueberries.How to Prepare Our Shortcake Recipe

This is one of the easiest recipes posted at Diet Bites.

Simply wash the berries and allow them to dry. Take care in handling them because berries tend to be very fragile and bruise easily.

Place the sponge cake on a dessert saucer and arrange the strawberries or raspberries in a circular fashion.

Next, add a good amount of blueberries to the top. If you can't find blueberries at the market, then blackberries will also work well. In fact, you can even use peaches, bananas, pineapple, apricots, mangos - or any of your favorite sweet fruits.

We do not recommend using avocado or tomato, though. While both are classified as fruits, they wouldn't taste well in this recipe. [hardy har-har]

Melt the jam, jelly or preserves of your choice and drizzle over the top of the fruit. If you prefer the flavor of honey and you think it will compliment the fruit, that could also be used OR a light white or maple syrup.
