Like some of the other reviewers, I was a little disappointed that these came out so flat. I also thought there was just a bit too much salt. I much prefer the Cooking Light recipe Pound Cake with Strawberry Glaze (March 2013). So I will stick with that one.
I made these for Easter dessert and they got rave reviews by everyone in the family! I was a little worried that they'd be too sweet but they turned out to have just the right pop of sugar and the yogurt whipped cream -- though not as fluffy as I thought it'd turn out to be -- was incredibly delicious! Bonus points for being very easy and quick to whip up. The perfect spring or summer dessert.
I just made this today and it was delicious. Super easy to make and it came together very quickly. It was picture perfect :)
I followed the recipe directions with one exception. I didn't have fresh buttermilk so I used powdered buttermilk and water to equal 1 1/4 cups liquid buttermilk as called for in the recipe. As stated in the recipe, the batter was very wet. My shortcakes did not look anything like those pictured in the recipe makeover article...they were pretty flat. Also, I found them to be bland.
Such a fast, easy and delicious light dessert! I love the extra "tang" that the yogurt adds to the whipped cream...I think I'll be making it this way for everything from now on.
Yum. I only added 1 Tblspn. of sugar to the yogurt cream, as I like to taste the tartness of the yogurt. This is a great way to get fiber & protein in a low cal./fat dessert ;-).
