Easy Blueberry Dump Cake- with fresh berries, not pie filling
Have you ever had a dump cake before? The name isn’t all that flattering, but don’t let that deter you from making one. It is basically a crisp or cobbler, but you use a cake mix for the topping. You literally dump a bunch of ingredients into a pan and end up with a mouthwatering dessert that no one can resist. So ignore the name and just think about how happy your mouth will be when you eat it. 🙂
Easiest Blueberry Cobbler ever!

There are dozen of versions of dump cake out there. You can use just about any combination of fruit. I’ve tried many of them over the years, but this blueberry dump cake has always been my favorite. The combination of the pineapple and blueberries is sooo good!

Easy to make, this Blueberry Dump Cake is always a hit!My mom made this when I was growing up, and I remember wanting to lick my plate clean because it was so yummy. She always added nuts, and I love the crunch they add. It wasn’t until I pulled this out of the oven that I realized I had forgotten to add them. It was still amazing, but I like it best with the nuts. You can choose.

And just in case you were wondering, you must serve it with vanilla ice cream! When it is warm and the ice cream melts down and makes it all ooey gooey, it is so delicious! Of course you can also serve it cold, and that’s refreshing. But my favorite is warm. Try it both ways and see what you prefer. Try to refrain from licking your plate. 🙂

  1. Do you thaw the blueberries??

  2. Jeanette says:

    I used a can of peaches instead of the pineapple and I also used spice cake mix. It was so yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  3. Why the pineapple? And do you have to use pineapple? could you just use more blueberries ? oh. Or maybe strawberries instead??

  4. Half Baked Boo says:

    Can I replace the yellow cake mix with a white one? Also if I used a mixture of canned blueberry filling along with fresh blueberries can I omit the sugar?

    • You can definitely use a white cake mix instead of a yellow one. I’m not sure how well it would work to use filling and fresh berries, but you could certainly try it.

  5. Do you have to rinse frozen blueberries

  6. can you use canned blueberry pie filling ?

  7. This looks and sounds amazing! I am allergic to pineapple so is there anything I can do to replace it?

    • I don’t know of a substitute for pineapple, but you could definitely just try adding a cup and half more blueberries. And maybe up the sugar to 3/4 cup if you prefer. because blueberries tend to be more tart than pineapple. Good luck!

    • Patricia says:

      Or, in place of pineapple, add a different berry and more sugar. That way you would jeep the complexity of the multi-fruit flavor that is so attractive in this recipe. (You could take a giant flier and try mango, too, if you like it.)
