Personally, I think Cake Mix Blueberry Cobbler is the perfect summer night treat! Especially when it’s warm, oh my… don’t even get me started!

It’s essentially a blueberry dump cake since you really just dump the ingredients into a cake pan and throw it in the oven. It ends up being so packed full of berries and having such a buttery cake.
