Our Kathy’s White Chocolate & Strawberry Shortcake

Our Kathy’s White Chocolate & Strawberry Shortcake

A true family favourite – it’s really easy and so tasty! Lots of you have tried it and some of you have even made it with other fruits apart from strawberries. You could try  raspberries or blueberries maybe? Anyway it’s the perfect summer dessert – with lovely juicy fruit! It’s also perfect as a BBQ dessert or for any special occasion – it always goes down a storm!  White Chocolate, Strawberries Cream, Shortcake – oh yum what’s not to like?!

The great thing is you can make it the day before and keep it in the tine. Tip out the lined loaf tine the following day when you’re ready and ta-dah a no hassle pudding! (And if you’re taking it to a party or a BBQ – there’s no need to worry about damage etc as you can transport it in the tin and tip it out when you get there!)  I like it in a loaf shape but i have send it made as a traditional round shape – looks pretty too!

And here is the lady herself in action, making it! Go Kathy …. So why not have a go at her White Chocolate & Strawberry Shortcake!!
