Brownie Shortcake with Berries

This is a quick and simple dessert, topped with fresh strawberries and blueberries.

Brownie Shortcake with Berries

1 (19.5 ounce) package brownie mix
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
1 Tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups cut strawberries and blueberries, mixed, not each, 1 1/2 cups of each

Whipped Cream
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare brownie batter as directed on package; stir in 1/2 cup of sour cream. Spoon into greased and floured 9 inch round cake pan.
  2. Bake 45 minutes; cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, cool completely.
  3. Make your whipped cream by adding the heavy cream to a mixing bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks are about to form, then add the vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure to not over-beat because the cream may become butter like or lumpy.
  4. Add remaining sour cream, sugar and vanilla to the whipped cream, stir to combine. Cut brownie horizontally in half. Place bottom half on plate; spread with half of the whipped cream mixture. Cover with top of the brownie, spread remaining whipped cream mixture and top with the mixed berries. Store in the refrigerator.

This is a wonderful dessert and nice alternative to the traditional shortcake dessert. The chocolate brownie pairs so nicely with the fresh fruit. I made and brought this over to a friends house for dinner and they loved it, I got rave reviews. This is a simple and quick dessert, I used the brownie mix for convenience, but you could also use your favorite brownie recipe as a substitute. Enjoy!

    What a fun idea. i like using it as a shortcake and adding some berries. usually brownies just get loaded with chocolate and occassionally nuts around here, so this is a nice alternative that still looks great. thanks for sharing!
