This amazing dessert is as easy as it is delicious. I made my own Angel Food Cake, but you can certainly buy store-bought to save yourself time! This dessert is soft and creamy. It tastes like angel food cake in one bite, blueberry pie filling in the next, and lemon pudding in the next! If you love desserts with blueberry and lemon, you will definitely like this easy option.

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

  1. 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!
  2. 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!

Can I Make This Without Lemon Zest?

Yes! 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.

How Does Blueberry Lemon Dessert Taste?

Just like you would imagine. 😂It’s soft and creamy. It tastes like angel food cake in one bite, blueberry pie filling in the next, and lemon pudding in the next! If you love desserts with blueberry and lemon, you will definitely like this easy option.

Can I Make this Ahead of Time?

Sure! This is best served cold, so making it the night before would be ideal. Then, it is ready to go when guests arrive the next day! I would not make this more than a day in advance and do not recommend freezing the dessert.

  1. Not sure I am understanding one detail
    do you make the lemon pudding then add the other ingredients or is it just the box as is you add to the other ingredients?

  2. I made the Blueberry Lemon Heaven Dessert for our church Fellowship today. It was a great hit! The only thing I took home was an empty dish.
    I am wondering if this receipe can be made with any other fruit filling, like cherry with vanilla pudding? I would appreciate a reply at your convenience.
    I love looking at all of your receipes and wish I could make every one of them. Keep up the great work!

  3. I want to substitute cream cheese for sour cream in the Lemon/Blueberry Angel food cake dessert. How much cream cheese will I need and can I use whipped cream cheese?

    1. Hi, Rose! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. For 1 cup of sour cream, substitute 8 ounces of cream cheese + 4 tablespoons of milk + 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. We have not tried this substitution for this recipe, so we can’t say if the taste will be the same. I hope this helps, and have a great day!

    1. Hi, Jeanette! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. You could use white cake but we have not tried that in this recipe. Let us know how it turns out, and have a great day!

    1. Hi, Heather! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. We have not tested the recipe using lemon curd, so I can’t say how it would affect the recipe. Have a great day!
