Blueberry Dump Cake


Okay, people, when it is simple and when it is fast I am always more inclined to do it. I love a good challenge like homemade doughnuts, yeast breads, birthday cakes, and all of that stuff, but sometimes you just need a simple recipe.  This blueberry dump cake is so easy! Three steps and three ingredients; that is all there is to it!  I had it in the oven within minutes, and the whole family was totally enthralled with the smell of it baking. In fact, I asked a poll on what to post for my Friday post, between cheeseburger pockets or blueberry dump cake, and since the ratio from girls to boys is 8 to 2, it was the sweet recipe! You can thank my sisters for that. 🙂


Anyway, all of you need to try this cake out. It is so versatile too! There is an excellent version of Blueberry and Peach Dump Cake on Dorothy’s blog. I didn’t have peaches, so I had to sort of made it up for me as I went, but believe me it was awesome! Besides, a standard dump cake is pretty simple.

Blueberry Dump Cake

  2. Dump the 2 1/2 cups of blueberries in the bottom of a baking dish (9×13″)
