Blueberry Trifle layers of lemon cake, blueberry pie filling, and cream are assembled in Mason jars to make a delicious and portable dessert.
Remember these cute little Red Velvet Trifles from the holidays? Today, I have an amazing summertime version using blueberry pie filling and lemon cake all layered up in some Mason jars.
I have been a little off the grid this past week. My mom was in town visiting while Jay was away for work. We attempted to get my house organized before the summer started and also painted two rooms, Ava’s and my office. It has been about 1 year since we have been in this house now so I thought it was about time to really start settling in and making it feel more homey. While we were working, mom and I talked about what some of our favorite summer time desserts are and she reminded me of this one. She had made this blueberry trifle many years ago for my sister’s bridal shower and everyone raved about this delicious dessert.
I love how easy these trifles are to make. Bake a standard boxed lemon cake and tear or cube it up into small pieces. While the cake is baking, mix together the cream cheese mixture until smooth. Open up a can of blueberry pie filling and then you can start assembling.
For this trifle I used Mason jars, actually I think mine are just jelly jars, but you can use a trifle bowl, or small glass, whatever you have on hand. Mason jars are great because they are portable making them perfect to bring on a picnic or to a party and quite frankly, who doesn’t love a Mason jar.
Now, for the layers, start with blueberry pie filling on the bottom, then cake, cream and repeat. That is it, all done! Put the trifles in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them. I am making these for a Memorial Day party we are attending but they would be great for any summer party.

These were so good I tried to lick the inside of the jar when I was done. I’m not ashamed…
These look really good. There is only my husband and I ,so I am wondering how they do in the ice box?
Thanks Lori 🙂 You can freeze the dessert just make sure you leave about 1 inch between the cake and the lid. They will keep for about 3 months. Just let them thaw out before you eat them. Hope you enjoy!
