I love making pretty individual desserts. They seem so personal and gives the impression that someone took the time to make something special just for you (me).

I like trifles and they are perfect to individualize by making them in a jar. Since blueberries are one of the super foods, they make great trifles.

I like this homemade blueberry jar trifle recipe for family gatherings or parties…

Blueberry Jar Trifle


  • 1 C. sugar
  • ½ C. butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ C. flour
  • 2 tsp. Baking powder
  • ½ C. milk
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • Whipped cream (I used Reddi-Wip)
  • 4 pints of fresh blueberries
  • 20-24 8 oz. jelly jars


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the sugar, butter, vanilla, milk and eggs and mix well. Stir in flour and baking powder. Mix well.
  • Pour batter into greased and lightly floured 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Let the cake cool completely by placing it in the fridge for a few hours.
  • Once the cake is cool, remove it from the baking dish and cut into small chunks and set aside. Next,  rinse your blueberries.
  • Finally, you can begin layering your jars. Start with a layer of cake, next add a layer of blueberries and then a layer of repeat cream. Repeat. Top with whipped cream and some extra blueberries on top.
  • Repeat this process with the other jars.

*Serve immediately. I don’t recommend storing them because of the whipped cream although you probably could leave in the fridge a few hours prior to serving.

Makes approximately 20-24 jars. (1) 8 oz. jar = 1 serving.

I hope you try this Blueberry Trifle in a jar… I think you’ll find it a big hit with your guests!

    Oh that looks refreshingly light for a summer dessert! I love fresh blueberries on just about anything. I don’t really make a lot of summer desserts, we usually just eat fresh fruit, but I do like a frozen pie or cake when we grill out or need to bring a dessert to a friend’s gathering.

  2. I honestly don’t have a favorite desert that I make for gatherings. I have plenty of favorites that I like to enjoy at events. I am normally the one who brings a main course item. This looks really good.

  3. Looks delish. I love eating things out of jars.
