Apricot Crumble in a Jar Recipe

Course Dessert
Author Jenn Quillen


  • 1 box of lemon cake mix
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup of apricot preserves
  • whipped cream optional
  • 10 mini jelly┬ájars 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.
