Blueberry Lemon Heaven Cake
Moving forward, any dessert that used angel food cake can call itself heaven. Can I get an amen? 😂This dessert couldn’t be easier and tastes pretty darn good. I decided to show you step-by-step how I put it together, just in case you are a visual learner like me.
How to Make Blueberry Lemon Cake
Start by cutting up your angel food cake into cubes. This can get messy as those glorious crumbs like to stick to everything, so just take your time and try to cut uniform pieces. Prepare your lemon pudding, open a can of blueberry pie filling, and open a container of cool whip. You are halfway done at this point!
Place half the angel food cubes into a 9×13 casserole dish. No need to spray it with non-stick spray.
3. Now take half of your blueberry pie filling and drop dollops over the angel food cake cubes. Take a small offset spatula and spread out the blueberry pie filling.
4. Place the remaining angel food cake cubes on top of the blueberry filling. Try to get an even layer.
5. Spread the lemon pudding over top of the angel food cake. Spread it out as evenly as you can with a small offset spatula.
6. Now cover the pudding with the whipped topping. I did the “dollop” method again so that I could try and get an even layer as possible.
If you want to make a homemade whipped topping, feel free. However, when I am making a dessert with store-bought pudding mix and store-bought pie filling I find that the subtle beauty of a homemade whipped topping can get lost. So cool whip it is!
7. Take the remaining blueberry pie filling and make dollops on top of the whipped topping. Using your offset spatula again, spread it out as evenly as possible. Pop it into the fridge for a few hours and you are done!
As you can see I added some fresh lemon zest to the top of the dessert. I didn’t like the sharp citrus zing that it brought to this dessert, but my husband did, so I left it as an “optional” ingredient.
