Step 1: Add Melted Butter to a White or Yellow Cake Mix

First things first, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Start by melting the butter in the microwave or in a sauce pan. In a medium mixing bowl, add a white or yellow cake mix and add the melted butter. Using a fork, mix together the cake mix and butter until crumbly.

Can I use a Sugar-free cake mix to make blueberry dump cake?

Yes! Using a sugar free cake mix is a great way to make this simple dessert without excess sugar. Here are a few sugar free cake mixes that would be great in this recipe:

Can I use a lemon cake mix for blueberry dump cake?

Step 2: Add Blueberries to a baking dish and sprinkle the cake mix crumbles on top

To a medium-sized baking dish (you can also use a 9×9″ baking dish or pan), add fresh or frozen blueberries. Frozen berries are a great option when fresh blueberries are out of season. Next, sprinkle the cake mix crumbles over the top of the berries.

Feel free to use your hands to pinch together the crumbles. You’ll want to have a rocky, gravel-like texture, as the less-powdery, the better.

Do you stir dump cake?

No. It is best to not stir dump cake together. Keep the fruit on the bottom and the cake mix crumbles on the top so everything bakes evenly.

Step 3: Bake the Blueberry Cobbler with Cake Mix

Once the cake mix crumbles are on top of the berries, the blueberry dump cake can go right into the preheated oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-33 minutes or until the cake mix crumbles become golden brown.

FAQ’s for How to Make Blueberry Dump Cake:

Can you just add blueberries to cake mix? 

Not really. Just dumping a cake mix over the top of blueberries will render a powdery, undesirable consistency. I would not recommend it.

Can I add frozen berries to cake mix?

Yes, you can use frozen berries when making blueberry dump cake. Add blueberries to the bottom of a baking dish, then top with a cake mix that has been mixed with melted butter.

Should I refrigerate dump cake?

Yes, you should refrigerate any dump cake leftovers. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 days.

How long can a dump cake sit out un-refrigerated?

Any dump cake can sit out un-refrigerated for a few hours. If you have leftovers, be sure to store in an airtight container, or cover baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

  1. Do you need to grease the bottom of the pan before placing the blueberries in it?
    • Erin Indahl-Fink says
      Nope! Feel free to add them directly to the pan or baking dish. The berries will generate enough juice to not stick to the pan.
