Summer Delights; Country Strawberry Shortcake

This is my recipe for strawberry shortcake. It’s easy to make.


¼ cup canola light butter melted, a bit more, un-melted, to grease the baking pan

1 and ¼ cups sugar

1 cup self-rising flour

1 cup low-fat buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together in a medium bowl; melted butter, sugar, flour, buttermilk, and vanilla. Whisk well and let sit briefly.

Thoroughly grease with canola light butter, then flour an 8×11 baking dish. Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish.

Bake on a higher oven rack for 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown on top.




1 pound fresh strawberries

1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons orange juice w/pulp

low-fat frozen Yogurt, strawberry


Clean and slice the strawberries. Put in a medium mixing bowl. Add sugar and orange juice. Toss gently until the sugar turns to liquid. Place in fridge until ready to serve.

Serving; Place a slice of the shortbread on the plate. Followed by a generous portion of strawberry topping. Then top with three small scoops of yogurt. This is a delicious summer desert; Yummy!

I hope you try it. I know you’ll enjoy it.

Healthy Country Blueberry Cobbler

This is a healthy blueberry cobbler that’s easy to make and delicious. Everyone loves it when I make it.

One and ½ cups plus 3 tablespoons sugar

1 cup self-rising flour

1 cup low fat butter milk

2 pints fresh blueberries

One 6.5 oz can fat free Reddi wip Dairy Whipped Topping for serving on top

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Generously grease an 8×11 deep, baking pan with canola light butter; then generously flour, covering the entire pan.

In a large mixing bowl combine 1 and ¼ cups sugar, the self-rising flour, low fat buttermilk, melted canola light butter. Whisk well and allow the batter to set briefly.

Rinse the blueberries using a collider and pour on paper towels to absorb excess water.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle the blueberries evenly over the batter. They will sink into the batter; that’s ok. Sprinkle ¼ cup of sugar evenly over the blueberries.

Bake for 35 minutes on a higher rack; then remove from oven. Spread 3 tablespoons of sugar evenly over the cobbler and bake for 10 more minutes.

The edges should be golden brown; if not bake a few more minutes until done. Cobblers are best if allowed to set and cool for 20 minutes.

When serving, top with fat free Reddi wip Dairy Whipped Topping; then top with more blueberries. Here’s a picture of what my Healthy Country Blueberry Cobbler looks like when the pan came out of the oven and what a serving size looks like.

Everyone gobbled this cobbler down so fast it was amazing. I hope you like it too.
