The shortcakes themselves aren't very sweet. Most of the sweetness will come from the berries. For a sweeter shortcake, you can try adding additional sweetener, but we would not add more than 1/4 cup.
You may need more or less sweetener on the berries, depending on how sweet they are. In-season berries tend to be sweetest and will need less of the sweetener.
We prefer Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener. It bakes and tastes like real sugar with zero impact on blood glucose. Use code THATLOWCARLIFE for 20% off your order at Lakanto.com. Other sweeteners that swap 1:1 for sugar may be used, but we have not tested them.
