Nutritional values

These delicious cakes are lighter and less caloric than traditional shortcakes, but provide antioxidants from the blueberries and easily-digestible fiber from the spelt flour.

Easily turn this into an autumnal or winter dessert by seasoning the sour cream with cinnamon instead of vanilla and using cranberries or jarred cherries instead of blueberries.
