  • 2 1/4 Cups Bisquick™ pancake & baking mix
  • 4 Full tins All The Berries Cane Sugar
  • 6 Cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 Cup whole milk
  • 1 1/4 Cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 Cup distilled water
  • 3 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 2 Limes


  • Preheat heat your oven 450F, and gently rinse raspberries.
  • Bring a small pot up to medium heat, and melt butter.
  • As soon as butter has melted, and before any browning occurs, add 3 cups raspberries, 2 full tins All The Berries Cane Sugar, and distilled water.
  • Cover, and increase heat to a low boil, stirring as you do. Lower to a simmer, and continue reducing, stirring occasionally, until needed.
  • In a large bowl, combine pancake mix and 2 cups raspberries, then pour in milk, and whisk into a thick batter.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use a hand blender to beat cream and 2 full tins of All The Berries Cane Sugar into whipped cream, roughly tripling in size.
  • Drop 8 generous spoonfuls of batter onto 2 ungreased baking trays, and pop in the oven for 9 minutes.
  • Remove, and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Slice one of the limes into thin coins, and reserve.
  • Use a hand-blender to puree compôte, and take off heat.
  • Cut shortcakes in half, widthwise, and plate bottoms on small individual serving bowls.
  • Top with whipped cream and raspberries, and several generous spoonfuls of berry compôte.
  • Crown with the cake top, a further dollop of whipped cream, and a single raspberry.
  • Garnish bowls with citrus slices, and lightly zest all of the cakes with remaining lime.
  • Serve and devour!
