Blueberry Yum Yum – An Old Favorite Revived

by Alli

When I asked my daughter what she wanted me to cook for her birthday, she didn’t hesitate a bit. Blueberry Yum Yum for dessert and Chicken Alfredo for the main meal. You got it, honey!

Since all my kids are grown, we usually celebrate their birthdays on Sundays. The family gathers at my house after church on Sundays to enjoy a meal together. That’s not the only time we get together, but that’s usually when we celebrate birthdays.

Once upon a time, I made this dessert on a regular basis. It’s a great dessert to take to a potluck, family reunion, and any other occasion. It always gets rave reviews. 

Amazing Blueberry Yum Yum

You’ll probably find this recipe in every southern church cookbook. I’m sure everyone has their own twist on this favorite, but this is my version.

It seems that recipes, like everything else, ebbs and flows. Remember when Banana Split Cakes were all the rage? And I remember the first time I made the bread in the dutch oven. I’ve noticed it’s had a revival of sorts. Or maybe it’s just the millennial cooks are just now hearing about this easy, no-fail bread.

Whatever the reason, I’m glad my daughter asked me to make Blueberry Yum Yum and encouraged me to take a trip down memory lane.

Top with the remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate at least two hours or overnight.

Topping for Blueberry Yum Yum

I usually make this the night before I’m serving it.

The original recipe called for Dream Whip. I don’t even know if they make the stuff any longer. It was in powder form and you added milk if my memory serves me correctly. The whipped topping works just fine for me.
