MAKE FLAG CAKE A THING EVERY SINGLE YEAR
Berry flag shortcake my ode to the brave Americans who fight for our country year after year. My husband is a veteran, my brother-in-law did two tours in Iraq, and we are very proud to be Americans and live in this beautiful country.
Berry flag shortcake is for all those brave souls who have endured tough times but still choose to rise up and live. This easy flag cake recipe has it all! It’s got two scoops of collagen for a healthier twist, tons of organic berries, and the shortcake is made with coconut sugar instead of white sugar.
I love cake, but I can’t eat all of the sugar that’s usually in it. My berry flag shortcake has half the amount of sugar of traditional strawberry shortcake, but it tastes just as good.
The frosting is also lower in sugar since it’s made with heavy whipped cream and coconut sugar, versus white sugar in traditional whipped cream.
ADD MORE FRUIT AND MAKE THIS SHORTCAKE EVEN BETTER
I’ve made this shortcake recipe countless times, but it wasn’t until last year at a Fourth-of-July BBQ hat I decided to take this cake up a notch. I add organic blueberries to the batter and it made this shortcake that much better!
Oh my, oh my, this flag cake is so delicious that your friends will ask for it year after year. With a light dusting of powdered sugar on top and fruit displayed like the American flag, this is the ultimate Americana dessert.
THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO MAKE THIS CAKE
I actually adapted one of my older and very popular recipes on my blog, my Collagen Strawberry Shortcake Bars. But then I thought, why not make blueberry shortcake? This berry cake is the ultimate combination of blueberry shortcake, and a flag cake combined to make one healthier and lower sugar dessert.
It’s literally one of my favorite recipes on the blog so far and one I’ll come back to again and again!
Flags not your thing, or perhaps it’s not an American holiday? No problem at all.
You could easily make shortcake bars out of this recipe and slice them similar to a sheet cake.
COLLAGEN MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER
The basis of this recipe is tried and true and with 20-grams of added collagen it tastes even better, because the collagen makes it a more moist and creamy shortcake.

Let’s be honest, collagen just makes everything better.
COCONUT SUGAR FOR A HEALTHIER SUGAR ALTERNATIVE
You guys know I’m all about that coconut sugar life and I prefer to use it in all of my baked good overs refined sugars. I prefer coconut sugar because the taste is similar to brown sugar, but I don’t feel like crap after I eat it.
Coconut sugar burns more slowly in the body so your body doesn’t get that sugar crash a few hours after eating it. I buy my coconut sugar at a super affordable price from Trader Joe’s. You can also order it in bulk from Amazon.
This Fruity Flag Shortcake is a gem and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I loved making it! The entire crew at our Fourth Of July soirée loved it too and I’m planning on make more this week.
