A Lemon Berry Shortcake that’s sure to please.

A fresh and light lemon zest spiked cake is sweetened with lush, juicy berries and a deliciously rich cream cheese frosting. The combination of flavours makes for a wonderful treat that’s homey but also a little bit special.

Again this is an easy cake to bake. It looks impressive because of the layering with bright berries and the thick layer of cream cheese frosting. A point of difference with this cake is that the frosting is on top of the berries which works particularly well with the frozen fruit this recipe calls for.

An excellent cake for a special afternoon tea but it would also be lovely as a dessert if you’ve over indulged during dinner (but still have room for cake – there’s always room for cake).
