Inspired by Debbie of Debbiedoos blog, I dumped blueberries and yellow cake mix into a baking dish for a tasty, spirit lifting, wintertime treat.
preheat oven to 350 or 325 for glass dish
1 yellow cake mix
1 can blueberry pie filling
1 can crushed pineapple with juice
I used tidbits because that is what I had on the shelf. Our kitchen show is strictly improvisational!
3 half sticks unsalted butter, melted
You know the routine…
Dump the fruit into a baking dish, top with dry cake mix spread evenly, top mix with pecans, pour melted butter over all, making sure to cover all the cake mix.
Bake about half an hour.
Blueberry Dump Cake with or without ice cream.
I have heard this is a southern dessert.
I’m not sure of it’s origins. It was a quick and easy crowd pleaser for many carry in dinners, north, south, east and west, back in the day.
I seem to remember my first dump cake was cherry and pineapple. Fruit and flavors varied as we young folks of the 60’s and 70’s improvised and experimented with the original recipe.
It has been many years since I made dump cake and so, with Debbie’s inspiration, I popped this one in the oven Saturday morning.
