YUMMY BLUEBERRY DUMP CAKE

Blueberry Dump Cake

I make this blueberry dump cake a little different from the regular recipe that has been around for years.  We love this with ice cream or whipped cream on top. Wonderful for any holiday or potluck event. You won’t have any left!  We love anything made with blueberries and this recipe with blueberries and pineapple is delicious. This cake keeps well for several days refrigerated.  You might also like to check out our recipe for blueberry crisp.  

Blueberry Dump Cake ingredients

3 cups blueberries
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple tidbits in juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 box Kroger Butter Recipe Cake Mix (can use yellow or lemon cake mix)
1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine or 12 tablespoons or 3/4 cup,  melted
1 cup walnuts or nuts of your choice

Rinse blueberries and pour into bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Pour pineapple tidbits and juice over the blueberries.  Sprinkle with sugar.  Sprinkle cake mix over the fruit mixture. (I take a spoon and spread it out evenly) Sprinkle walnuts over the dry cake mix.  Drizzle the melted butter over all.  DO NOT STIR.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes until top is brown and cake is bubbly.  Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.  Enjoy!

Tip for freezing blueberries:  Spread blueberries on a baking sheet in the freezer for a couple of hours.  Remove and place in airtight freezer bags.  Blueberries will keep up to 6 months frozen.

    My favorite is a can of dark cherries and red cherries with
    German chocolate cake mix.

  2. Char Harris says:

    I forgot to mention that I made The Fruit Cocktail Lunch Box Cake for my neighbors. They loved it! I delivered it right from the oven. It looked so pretty and smelled wonderful.

    Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      So glad this recipe was a hit! We love this one too!

  3. Char Harris says:

    My sister introduced our family to a Dump Cake when I was really young. (I am now 68). I remember everyone loving the cake, but being so surprised that she had actually baked something. She was not into cooking or baking. She usually would bring a store bought item to our family events. When asked about the cake, we all understood her to say, “It is a DUMB cake!” To this day, we still tease her about that.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Okay.. this is hilarious!! Thank you for sharing! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

  4. Sue Harris says:

    If you use can peaches how many can’s and do you still use the pineapple or use another fruit

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I would use a large can of peaches. You could do either on the other fruit, Sue. Just use your imagination and experiment with what you like.

      1. I just love this filling , wish i had more of it … Yes !

  5. PEGGY TAYLOR says:

    I HAVE MADE THIS USING APPLE PIE FILLING BEFORE AND IT WAS SO GOOD. I WILL MAKE IT USING BLACKBERRIES.

  6. how is this cake the NEXT day? does it hold up? can you MAKE it a day ahead, and then somehow heat it up, or just serve it cold?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I just heat it up in the microwave if you want it heated the next day or eat it cold.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, you can Jeanne.

  7. Made this yesterday using lemon cake mix; everyone loved it! Thank you for sharing this recipe 🙂

  8. kentuckykaren says:

    Can’t wait to try this. Wondering how it would work with blackberries and pineapple.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      That sounds good to me.

  9. Could I use blueberry pie filling and omit the sugar?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can try it.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, you can.

  10. I just made this and it is delicious although it had a lot of juice and looked a little “runny” is it supposed to be that way or should I drain it?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      It should not be real runny, Tina. There will be some juice though.

  11. This is my hubbys fav dessert…. but in our house I use 1 can of apple pie filling and I can of cherry pie filling. Then I sprinkle cinnamon over the filling then put the cake mix on top! So yummy!!! Have you ever done the blueberry with lemon cake mix? I wonder how good that is? Because I just love the butter cake mix!!!

  12. Does the crust topping come out gooey or crunchy? I can’t stand for the topping to be gooey after it sits awhile. Just wondering…

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      It’s kind of like pie crust.

  13. Char Oliver says:

    I make this only with peaches instead of blueberries. Family loves it!

  14. So you make the cake batter or just use it dry and pour the dry mix on top?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Use it dry.

  15. Bonnie Fuller says:

    Just made this …Wow!!!! Easy, easy, easy, and delish!! Thanks..

  16. Deb merlino says:

    I made this tonight!!! My family loved it !!!
    Love your recipes.
    Thank you for sharing!!

  17. I have made this using apple pie filling and sliced apples from the can leaving out all other fruits. It was like apple cobbler. You could probably use the canned apple or fresh instead of the pineapple.

  18. Do you use fresh blueberries? Would frozen blueberries work?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, Dave, you could use either.

  19. Lenore McKenna says:

    Can’t find a Kroger cake mix, what can I substitute ?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can use any brand cake mix.

  20. velma lee says:

    if you use canned pie filling blueberries, instead of fresh, how many cans would you use for the 3 cups of fresh? what about the “syrup” or “juice” that comes in a pie filling?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I think the canned pie filling comes in a 20 ounce can. I would just use that one. Drain if you can.

  21. Wonder what could be substituted for the pineapple…allergy in the family to pineapple

    1. Connie Davison says:

      I think 3 apples chopped into small bits would work. Apple sauce would be too runny. Pear or peaches could also work.

  22. Just made the Blueberry Dump Cake. I added extra blueberries, and little extra sugar. Delicious! !!

  23. As a Florida girl, I use coconut in quite a few recipes. When making dump cake of any flavor, I add coconut as my first layer, before the fruit. Then just before it is done, I sprinkle a little bit on top and return to oven to brown.

  24. Just wanted to thank the Southern Lady for all of he tasty love. G LOVE2YA! Sweetness!.

      1. If you can use canned pie filling,then would i use about 3 cups as same as 3 cups of blueberry on your recipe? TKS

  25. This looks and sounds really good! I have mine in the oven for homecoming dinner after Church tomorrow. Happened to have freshly picked blueberries.

    1. The blueberry dump cake was fantasatic! It was a hit!

  26. Crystal Kingery says:
