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!
