Once you make this Easy Blueberry Dump Cake recipe, you’ll understand why I say it is the most delicious Blueberry Dump Cake ever!
We had a family gathering at our house this weekend for the fourth. It was a super busy day, starting out with a children’s parade and neighborhood party, complete with bounce houses, water slides and fishing and we grilled a huge meal. We then ended the day with the city firework show.
Homemade ice cream was on the menu for our dessert, but by the time we needed to get the ice cream going, we were too pooped to go to the trouble of making the ice cream from scratch. Luckily, I had already bought the ingredients for this easy blueberry dump cake recipe last month and just hadn’t gotten around to making it. (I even had store-bought vanilla ice cream on hand for something I’m doing with the kids this week.)
What is a Dump Cake:
A dump cake can be made with a variety of ingredients, but most recipes are made with a boxed cake mix and some sort of pie filling, plus butter. The basic concept is, you “dump” a few ingredients into a pot or casserole dish, bake it in the oven and the ingredients transform into a scrumptious dessert.
I make a cherry dump cake all the time, and it’s delicious too, but I think I like the blueberry version best. (The cherry version is made the same way as this blueberry dump cake, but with cherry pie filling instead of blueberry.)
If you’ve never had a dump cake before, you’re in for a treat. They are super simple to make with hardly any prep time and they taste decadently delicious!
