Sweet Cornbread Triple Berry Shortcakes

Sweet Cornbread Triple Berry Shortcakes Sweet honey cornbread cupcakes turned into the best shortcakes you will ever have.  Triple sugared berries piled high with fluffy clouds of home made whipped cream.  Summer was always meant to be this sweet

Sweet Cornbread Triple Berry ShortcakesNow for my new summer favorite.  These Sweet Cornbread Triple Berry Shortcakes are the perfect excuse to raid your fridge for berries.  The shortcakes are dripping with tons of juicy tart berries but don’t forget the star of this dessert.  It’s the moist sweet honey cornbread that will have you coming back for more.  I played with the idea of cornbread as strictly a dessert when I made Blueberry Cornbread Cupcakes.  They were devoured by everyone within a three foot radius.

Sweet Cornbread Triple Berry Shortcakes

I started with the same cornbread cupcake recipe used in the Blueberry Cornbread Cupcakes and sliced them in half after they cooled.  You can totally go bigger with a muffin tin instead, which will make for a much filling dessert.  After smothering them in fresh homemade whipped cream, layer the sugared berries on and you have the perfect summer dessert for a cookout or pool party!  I definitely say go with homemade whipped cream because the shortcakes will keep their shape much longer than canned whipped cream.
