Light is a relative term when you’re talking about whipping up 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream and embellishing the dessert with a scoop of ice cream. Be that as it may, angel food cake is made with egg whites only and no added fat, so maybe everything balances out.
Cocoa Shortcakes with Semisweet Chocolate Whipped Cream Recipe

Kentucky is only a stone’s throw away from Tennessee. The two states kiss along our northern border. So it’s no surprise that next to our own distilled whiskey — one step away from moonshine — the favorite hard liquor around these parts is bourbon.
This shortcake can be made as a scone — round and served warm with butter — but I decided to do it in a star shape because it is more fun as a Fourth of July dessert, served with fresh raspberries and whipped cream. These are delicious and very festive.
