Three Berry Shortcake Skewers are stacked with delicious juice berries and pound cake, then drizzled with a sweet raspberry infused balsamic reduction which takes this dessert to the next level!
Putting the three berry shortcake skewers together couldn’t be easier! All you need is berries, pound cake (or angel food cake works too), Alessi Raspberry Infused White Balsamic Reduction, and whipped cream – simple.
Stack your berries onto your skewers and add some cake in between.
When you have all the three berry shortcake skewers put together, drizzle the Alessi Raspberry Infused White Balsamic Reduction over the top – it’s sooooo good!
I loved using this reduction on the skewers because it’s a sweet syrup like product and adds the perfect flavor pop to the skewers. It is created by taking a liquid (like vinegar) and thickening and intensifying its flavor into a sauce. This can be done by boiling the liquid and adding sugar and other ingredients. Alessi’s is a lighter more runny reduction that makes it great to drizzle over foods without being too heavy. Additionally, the flavors used in Alessi’s reductions (there are SO many different flavors) are intensified since they aren’t being hidden by unwanted fillers. In fact, Alessi’s Classic Balsamic Reduction only has two ingredients, so you don’t have to worry about unwanted chemicals in your food.
I really like serving the skewers alongside a bowl so that people have the option to put everything into the bowl. Once you slide everything into the bowl you can add a bit of whipped cream to the top, and add a little more Alessi’s Raspberry Infused White Balsamic Reduction, yum! Alternatively, if you are like my kids, you can leave everything on the skewer and dip it into the whipped cream – there is no wrong way to eat these!
