Chocolate Shortcake

  • 2 cups (250 g) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (29.5 g) baking cocoa
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • cup (67 g) granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick / 113 g) unsalted butter, cold
  • cup semisweet chocolate chips, plus extra for topping
  • ¾ cup (45 g) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large egg, for egg wash
  • ½ teaspoon coarse sugar



  • Preheat oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • Cut in butter and chocolate chips until crumbly.
  • Add heavy whipping cream and stir until just moistened.
  • Divide dough into 8 patties, about ¾-inches thick. (They will be similar in size and shape to a hockey puck.)
  • Place the dough patties onto the lined baking sheet.
  • Brush with egg white; sprinkle with coarse sugar and the reserved chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with just a few crumbs. Allow to cool on a cooling rack.


  • Cut the cooled chocolate shortcakes in half.
  • Place bottom half of shortcake on a plate and cover in strawberries, blueberries, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce.
  • Set top layer of shortcake on top. Cover in whipped cream, fruit, and chocolate sauce.
  • Serve immediately.
