Lemon Blueberry Dump Cake is so easy to make and it tastes absolutely delicious! Fresh blueberries, lemon zest and lemon cake mix create a fruity, zesty dump cake that will satisfy even the biggest skeptic!

If you’ve never had a dump cake, you’ve been missing out! I’ve been making these easy desserts (like my Caramel Apple Dump Cake) for as long as I can remember. What is a dump cake? Simply stated, a dump cake is similar to a cobbler where fruit is dumped on the bottom of a pan and a cake mix is literally dumped on top! It is actually that easy!

I love easy recipes that you know will turn out perfectly with very little work and this Lemon Blueberry Dump Cake definitely fits the bill! We often have last minute guests come so I love that this takes literally 5 minutes of prep! As simple as it is, it does taste impressive and is perfect topped with ice cream!

This recipe calls for fresh blueberries but you can use frozen if you need. If you do use frozen blueberries, reduce the evaporated milk to 1/2 cup as the frozen berries will release more liquid than fresh. I use a lemon cake mix, but a white or yellow cake mix will work as well. In this case, you might like to add a bit more lemon zest for that lemony fresh flavor.

A dump cake is not served by the slice as a traditional cake would be. It is instead scooped out and piled high on a serving bowl (much like a fruit crisp would be served) in a delicious mish mash of cake and fruit! Crown this spectacular Lemon Blueberry Dump Cake with creamy vanilla ice cream goodness!

  1. I made this the other day and it was delicious, I didn’t have any leftover to bring home from a party.
    Can you bake it covered for 25 minutes first and then uncover the last 25 minute? I was curious how the crust would turn out.

  2. If using frozen blueberries, do I thaw them first?

    • I’d use them from frozen and reduce the liquid as noted in the recipe to account for the moisture of the frozen berries. Enjoy Cindy!

  3. Can you make this the night before?

  4. Can you use can pie filling blueberries?

  5. What temperature do you set the oven to
