Easter Brunch: Lemon Strawberry Shortcake

Lemon Strawberry Shortcake is perfect for your Easter brunch. I realized while making this recipe that it is a perfect “build it yourself” dessert, which means that you, the host, have only a few things to do to get this dessert ready.

Bake up your Lemon Tea scones that day. Or the night before. These weren’t going to be a separate recipe, but they are in fact the shortcake component of my lemon Strawberry Shortcake. Real shortcake is actually a scone or biscuit, not a cake. So of course, why would I make a cake instead of my favorite food of all? So off I went to create a scone/biscuit for my shortcake. And they are so good by themselves, they had to be a separate recipe.

Slice up a bunch of fresh strawberries.

Make your Lemon Whipped Cream.

If you have company, set it out like this:

Everyone can take a sliced scone, layer on the whipped cream and strawberries and chose to eat it with or without a top.

It nicely involves your guests in preparing their own dessert, they can chose the amount of all ingredients and the preparation time is minimal for you the actual day of. Easter is all about family, visiting and eating chocolate friends, so a dessert that doesn’t take you away from the last three is perfect.

Take your whipping cream and start whipping it in your mixer. Add in the sugar, zest and lastly the lemon juice. Whip until it forms soft peaks. If you want you can refrigerate it for 2-3 hours before serving. This is amazing on fresh strawberries, scones, anything you can pair with whipped cream!
