Apricot Crumble in a Jar Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 box of lemon cake mix
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup of apricot preserves
  • whipped cream (optional)
  • 10 mini jelly jars or mason jars - the 4 oz. size
  • non-stick cooking spray
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray your 10 4 oz. jelly jars with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium sized bowl use a large fork or a pastry cutter to cut the lemon cake mix and the stick of softened butter together. The mixture will be soft and crumbly. Set aside.
  3. Using a tablespoon, scoop 2 tablespoons of the crumb mixture into the bottom of each jelly jar and gently press down with your fingers.
  4. Next, scoop about 2 tablespoons of apricot preserves into the jars on top of the crust. Don't be shy and add a bit more if you'd like.
  5. Use the remaining crumb mixture as a topping and add 1-2 tbs. on top of the fruit.
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes. The crust will turn golden brown.

Once the jars have cooled top with whipped cream (optional) and more preserves if you like!

This recipe makes approximately 10 servings depending on the size of your jar. Each jar is a serving, of course. These are great for making a day or two ahead and storing in the fridge so that when your backyard BBQ rolls along, you can simply send the kids into the kitchen to grab dessert. It’s one less thing to worry about while you are busy entertaining your guests – and turning those steaks!

Your little apricot crumbles in a jar will stay good for up to a week so long as the lid is on tight.

    I have actually never trying apricots. The jar recipes are always good though, since they are perfectly portioned. I wouldn’t mind trying a bite!

    This looks so delish! I love it for a backyard BBQ or picnic and that it’s in the little jars makes it so much easier to transport!
