There are two times of year where dessert reigns.  Summer and the holidays.  Summer desserts like my Lemon Blueberry Crunch Cake Individual Trifles hit just the right note after sharing a meal outside with friends during the summer.

Why they are so easy:

This recipe couldn’t get any easier.  Everything is pre-made and can be picked up at the grocery store and assembled the morning of your party. When it’s hot out guests generally won’t look for a hot dessert – so this is the perfect summer entertaining recipe.   You can make some adjustments, like making the pudding yourself, or using fresh whipped cream (which I would recommend if time isn’t an issue – or if you just love the taste like me), but the original recipe was given a thumbs up by my testers – so I’m giving it to you in its’ original form.



First – hit the grocery store.  I went to Walmart and picked up a Lemon Blueberry Crunch Cake.  They had different crunch cakes in different flavors – so feel free to change up this recipe (and share with us)! These are so tasty on their own – but as part of this trifle recipe they’re even better!

Check out this simple & easy individual summer trifle recipe for Lemon Blueberry Crunch Cake Individual trifles! They are easy to make, easy to transport, and everyone loves them! Especially the kiddos! Top with blueberries and strawberries for a finishing touch! An alternative to regular angel food cake trifles that packs tons of flavor! #trifles, #easytrifles, #makeahead, #summertrifle


Additional items you’ll need:

One quart of strawberries

One pint of blueberries

Sugar

2 Naval Oranges

1 Package of 6 pre-made pudding cups

1 large Cool Whip Topping

Your next step:

Check out the measurements in the recipe, and start to macerate your berries.  This will allow all of the juices to come out, and create an even sweeter taste.
 
 
As your berries macerate, cut your crunch cake into cubes and place on the side.  Make sure your trifle bowl, or individual dishes (I used mason jars) are clean and ready to go.  When the berries are finished, (about 30-60 minutes), you’re ready to assemble!

Assembly

Assembly of the Lemon Blueberry Crunch Cake Trifle is super easy.

Notes from my testers:

  • Make sure you serve this dish cold!  I had to transport the dish to my testers, and it was super hot out.  Even with ice packs, etc, it wasn’t as cold as it should have been.  Chill up until the time you plan to serve it.
  • They loved the individual mason jars that I served the trifle in.  Some saved it until later, and had a treat for later in the evening.  Others ate it right away.
  • Use disposable utensils.  One tester suggested that if you are transporting this dish away from home to attach disposable utensils.  I think this is a fabulous idea!  (I ended up bringing home dirty spoons).
  • SAVE ROOM – every single one of the testers finished the entire jar.  I was a happy lady.
