Mini Wild Blueberry and Cream Cheese Trifles

May seems to be flying by and I can’t believe I missed my one year blog anniversary!   One year ago on Mother’s Day I started this crazy adventure and somehow wrangled my husband into doing the pictures for me.

I had no idea what blogging would entail.   No really, I had NO idea what I was doing.  Photography?  Food styling? I’m just a girl who loves to bake yummy things and share them with others.  And I still have a lot to learn.

The world is such a small place for bloggers and foodies alike.  I can’t believe the mail I’ve received from people who live in some pretty amazing places.  I love to hear from you!  I love to receive all of your questions and comments.   There are actually more people than just me who think frosting should be added as the 5th food group.

Who knew!

I have learned so much from you too.  I am constantly amazed by the other sites I visit.  Some of you have been a real inspiration to me!  Let’s see where this road takes us, shall we?  I’m excited to see what the next year brings.

Mini Wild Blueberry and Cream Cheese Trifles

*make these in disposable cups for easy clean-up!

*recipe adapted from My Baking Addiction

  •  5 slices of ready made pound cake cut into small cubes
  • 250 g cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lemon zested
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • wild blueberry sauce – I used about 1 1/2 cups of my homemade Wild Blueberry and Lemon Preserves (here)

1.  Whip cream cheese, vanilla, cream, lemon zest and sugar in a small bowl until soft peaks form.

2.  I layered the cream cheese whip, pound cake and blueberry sauce in disposable plastic wine cups.  Yield 7 dessert cups.

Enjoy!

    I love baking yummy things too and love sharing them and would love to have my own blog, I wish I only knew how to get started. So for someone who had no idea, you’re doing really good!!! This trifle by the way, look gorgeous and your pictures are too. Thank you for sharing!

  4. On the occasions where my girlfriend and I find time to sit down and eat a meal together, I like to go all out when it’s my turn to cook. On every entree. Thank you for the next end of a great meal, and start to a great night.

  5. These look WAY too good to eat … but then again, I’ll eat just about anything blueberry.

    Looks delicious! I not-so-secretly have a love affair with cream cheese and I’m also lactose intolerant. The gods were cruel to me.

  8. I usually refuse desserts! My belly can only take so much food! However, I must admit I definitely wouldn’t refuse this!
    Yum!

  63. Blueberry cheesecake is my absolute favorite desert, this looks like maybe a slightly less guilty pleasure. Thanks.

  64. Ooo! I love trifles! I could eat on of these right now…only we don’t have any wild blueberries…:)

  65. I’m kicking myself for never having thought of mini trifles. So simple to execute, so lovely, so delicious! Good one.

  66. Oh my gosh – yum! Im going to make this for afternoon tea on the weekend! great pics too

  67. Wow! You have accomplished a lot in a year! Lovely recipes. And kudos to your photographer husband. Beautiful work. I, too, love to bake and blog about it. Love pies and tarts especially. Happy baking!

  68. I love trifle! This one is not like any I have made or eaten. Cream cheese being the surprize here. Thank you for this lovely treat.

  69. With fresh blueberries in season right now, think I’ll replace the preserves with the fresh ones. Great idea. Would have never thought of adding the cake like that. In fact, I bet strawberries would be just as good.
    Thanks for sharing. You Matter! Smiles, Nancy

    Something to make this weekend. Yum!

  71. What a great blog entry :) So true – blogging can truly open your eyes to a whole new world of people, passion and excitement. I certainly feel like my daily blog is an outlet for my creative juices. Oh and YUM, I have saved your dessert on my ‘must make’ list! Thanks :)

  72. Looks delicious. Can’t wait for summer ( in the middle of winter here!)

  73. I’ll be honest; I generally DESPISE blueberry-anything! But this truly looks – and sounds – to-die-for… Credit to your incredible food-photography and easy-to-digest (pun intended?) writing! Can’t wait to give it a try.

  74. This looks delicious…and gorgeous! Can’t wait to try it!

  77. Reblogged this on blazikenblade and commented:
    u can never go wrong with trifles for dessert, quick,easy & always delicious. In any combo u cant go wrong (^_^)

  78. I can hardly wait to try this. You had me at “cream cheese” — but I love blueberries as well! Looks delish and the photos are beautiful! (please don’t encourage “disposables,” though – the landfills can’t take much more! Thank you! ;)

  79. Reblogged this on TEES AND MORE and commented:
    Yummmmmm

  80. Looks delicious…wild blueberries are lovely; do you have your own bushes? And congratulations on your one-year. I’m celebrating my one-month!

  81. Deliciously inviting! Beautiful pictures! Congratulations on being freshly pressed…and the nice blog!

  82. Just found your post from WordPress “Jest Pressed” and I’m pretty sure my wife is going to become a fan yours! Delicious!

  83. Congratulations on your one year blogiversary! These photos are making me salivate – that’s perfection in a cup! My only complaint is that each cup is too small – I’d need several to satisfy my sweet tooth.

  84. marliheart

    Great! Looking forward to testing this.
    Checked out your blog today…really nice blogging and great recipes!
    Thanks for sharing and congratulations on your one year aniversary :)
