What is a dump cake?

If you are new to the world of dump cakes you are probably balking at the name, right?! Don’t worry, it’s not as weird as it sounds.

Dump cakes are cakes that you don’t actually mix up. The ingredients get layered in the pan and then you dump the ingredients and bake them. It’s referring to the fact that everything just gets “dumped” into the baking dish and then baked!

Don’t worry, I’ll show you how to make this delicious cake that comes out perfectly with almost zero effort. It doesn’t get much easier than dump cakes!

How do I serve this dump cake with blueberries?

When it is time to serve I just get a serving spoon and some plates or bowls. You can scoop out a serving and put it right on the plate. The cake part of the recipes is on top so it will be kind of like a crumble recipe or pie that has a gooey bottom.

This is the kind of dessert that is best served in a heap! We like to pair it with some vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream and then just dive on in with a spoon! It might not look like a fancy dessert but the flavors are great and it’s super simple to prepare!

Kitchen Essentials for Baking:

If you are trying to pick out some of the best supplies to stock your kitchen for cake mix recipes and baking in general, these are some of our favorites and must have items.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

Ingredients Needed For A Blueberry Dump Cake:

This recipe uses canned blueberry pie filling or fresh blueberries, it’s up to you! In addition you’ll need yellow cake mix and butter.

When it comes time to serve this blueberry dump cake you will also need some ice cream or whipped cream topping to make it the perfect dessert to share.

If you are using fresh blueberries you will also need some sugar. You can find the ingredients and the full recipe listing in the printable card at the bottom of the post!!

Can I use a different fruit?

You can use any kind of fruit you like. If you decide to go with the canned pie filling you can use whatever flavor of pie filling you like to make a variety of different dump cake recipes!

I like to use fresh blueberries when they’re in season because our bush produces so many at once but when I make this in the winter months I’ll break out the canned pie filling and you just can’t beat the ease of that.

If you use a type of pie filling like apple or peach where the fruit is larger you may want to chop the pieces up smaller first but other than that it’s easy to just swap one flavor out for another…or you can mix two cans together to create your own hybrid of flavors!
