Blueberry Sugar Shortcakes with Mango Compote

sho

ahh! hi!

Sorry, I feel like I’ve been seriously cheating on you all lately. I’ve been cooking, baking, and cooking obnoxiously more (as usual) but instead of sharing it with you all I have been EATING it all! Oops.

Life’s been crazy busy lately so I’ve had absolutely no time to to take pretty pics and write about it. Only enough time to shove it in my own mouth. Things are going to start settling down though next week so get ready for some full force Whipped recipes!

 

I’ve been slowly getting all my stuff together for my new apart and it is taking for-ev-er to organize my life. Mainly because organizing has revolved around couponing… so things don’t get checked off until Bed Bath & Beyond decides to give me another 20% off discount in my Martha Stewart Magazine. I’m also now a full-time mom to an adorable little morkie who reminds he needs to pee every 15 minutes. He is the absolute CUTEST little guy in the world. Plus my new job starts in two weeks and I’ve started selling cakes as a little side business :) Woo! All fun stuff!!

So now to these fabulous Blueberry Sugar Shortcakes with Mango Compote. I’m cheating again…I made these last year for Memorial Day and I absolutely had to share the recipe again! These are too too good. They’re kinda big though for a one person dessert so feel free to only serve one shortcake with the whipped cream and mangoes instead of sandwiching two.

 

These shortcakes are perfectly sweet with fresh blueberries and this fantastic crunch on top from a sprinkle of sanding sugar before going into the oven. The middle is really all about the fresh mangoes – try and get your hands on the best ripe mangoes. If you can’t find any, definitely feel free to substitute in any fruit you like – strawberries, peaches, apricots – whatever you like.

 

 

If I don’t get back to the blog before this weekend, have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend guys!!
