I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Recipe - Blueberry Dump Cake

I have Barbara over at Barbara's Bakin' N Bits to thank for this recipe. It's very easy to make.

First, gather your ingredients
In a 9 x 13 inch baking pan, spread the crushed pineapple
Layer the blueberries over the crushed pineapple
Sprinkle sugar over the top of the blueberries
Spread the dry cake mix over the sugar, blueberries, and pineapple
Drizzle melted butter over the top of the dry cake mix
Top with chopped nuts and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes
Let cool to room temperature and serve
I was thinking that vanilla ice cream would be good over this.
It's like an easy cobbler.
Here is the recipe.

Blueberry Dump Cake
1 large can of crushed pineapple, do not drain
3 cups of fresh blueberries, if using frozen blueberries - thaw first
3/4 cup of sugar
1 regular box of yellow cake mix
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup chopped nuts - pecans or walnuts or whatever you choose

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spread undrained crushed pineapple in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan
Place blueberries on top of the crushed pineapple
Sprinkle sugar over the blueberries
Spread dry cake mix over blueberries
Drizzle melted butter over the dry cake mix
Sprinkle chopped nuts on the top
and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes
Cool to room temperature and serve

Like I mentioned above, I think that vanilla ice cream would pair well with this recipe. It is a very sweet and rich dessert. It's easy to make. And makes a great dish to take to summer pot luck suppers.

Happy Baking, Everyone, from KY.

Hi Kathy! Boy, this does look really easy and yummy. I'm sure you could play around with the recipe using different fruits and nuts and I totally agree, this would be super yummy still warm out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream! Thanks!

Hope you're having a good weekend.

Julie - we have had some hot and humid weather here, but not over the mid-90's. We're in the 80's today and tomorrow, and Monday will be back in the 90's. We got a good soaking rain yesterday, finally. I'm glad you like the recipe. It is very easy and tasty to boot.

Thanks Andrea! Yes, I think when I first saw this recipe many years ago, it used a pie filling instead of the blueberries, but the initial layer was the pineapple, probably because of the moisture. Also, you could use what ever cake mix flavor you want. Over on Barbara's blog, someone used a lemon flavored cake mix, which sounds refreshing to me. Hope you're having a good weekend, too. Thanks for your comments. Take care, from KY.

This looks really great; I'll have to make it for quilting bee.

Oh yes it is simply delicious, and with ice cream on top it is perfect..Thanks for sharing with all, A friend used a lemon cake mix doing hers, and said that was really good too, so I guess whatever you like you can do, and you sure can replace the blueberrys with any berry. Blackberry would be good, they are usually very plentiful, and yep save all these delicous recipes for winter, my freezer is full of blueberries so will have lots for the years, Hugs my friend.
