Blueberry Sugar Shortcakes with Mango Compote

So I am SO excited for this weekend! Foodbuzz (if you haven’t heard of it, check it out here, its a food blogging website) picked my proposal for an Earth-friendly, Green Dinner Party that I will be hosting this Saturday! It’s going to be featured on their website for the next couple weeks along with a few other deliciously talented food blogger’s parties.

The party’s theme is inspired by this month’s Earth Day, so everything I will be cooking and using will all be eco-friendly, local, natural…vegetarian and mostly vegan! YUM! Think Sun-dried tomato chickpea burgers…Artichoke pesto crostini, basil sweet potato fries…..and plenty more!

It’s been a busy week testing and re-testing recipes…blood, sweat, and olive oil…shoving my face with blueberry shortcakes and sipping sparkling gin cocktails… :)

Which…don’t judge, dinner parties are work! Those “Easy DIY” Martha Stewart table centerpieces…so not DIY.. more like call up Target. And quick. This is my first official dinner party unless you want to count serving oreos and rum and cokes in college…so I’ve got a lot to learn but having so much fun prepping!

 

I absolutely CANNOT wait to share my party with you all this weekend! So to keep it all a surprise I”m ending this post early and giving you a little taste of what’s to come! Here’s my dessert recipe I will be making on Saturday, [typography font="Delius" size="16" size_format="px"]Fresh Blueberry Shortcakes with Mango Compote[/typography] … yummmm!

These little dreamboats are light and fluffy blueberry shortcakes with a bit of a crunch on top from a final sprinkle of coarse sugar. They’re sandwiched with fresh whipped cream and a simple mango compote. The blueberries and mango are an awesome contrast between the tender cakes and fluffy whipped cream!

Best enjoyed the same day you make them. Otherwise the shortcakes will stay pretty well overnight in an airtight container.
