Many years ago one of my readers asked me if I had the recipe for a dump cake. I had never heard of it before, so of course I had to look into it and see what it was. Needless to say, when I realized what it was, I loved the idea of such a simple cake. Since then I’ve made many dump cakes, because let’s face it, it’s easy and so delicious!

Blueberry Dump Cake

  • Easy 5 min prep time
  • 3 ingredients
  • Easy to follow steps
  • Dump, bake, eat!

The fruit base could be anything, cherries, pineapple, lemon curd, peaches, or in this cake blueberries. No matter what your fruit filling is, this cake will be delicious, especially if you serve it warm with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream!

Ingredient Notes

  • Blueberry Pie Filling: I like to use two cans of 21 oz blueberry pie filling for the convenience of not having to make the filling from scratch. You can also use different fruit fillings like cherry, peach, etc.
  • Cake Mix: I prefer the yellow cake mix you can buy from any store. You can also make your own using my recipe here.
  • Butter: Salted or unsalted melted butter.

How To Make Blueberry Dump Cake

  1. Prep the oven: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Assemble the cake: Dump the blueberry pie filling into a 9×13 inch baking dish and spread it evenly over the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the yellow cake mix over the blueberry pie filling. Drizzle with melted butter over the surface of the cake mix. Don’t worry, you won’t have enough to drizzle over the entire surface.
  3. Bake: Transfer the baking dish to the oven and bake for up to 1 hour or until golden brown.
  4. Serve: Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream, if preferred.
