Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake
This easy cobbler requires no stirring or mixing of the batter. You simple add all the ingredients into a pan and then bake! I even made a video to show how easy it is!
As promised, I’m previewing a few recipes from my brand new cookbook Dump Cakes from Scratch. I had to start with this one, as it’s the very first one I created for the book.
The very first dump cake I ever made was actually a blueberry dump cake. And while I liked how easy it was, I found it to be way too sweet. Blueberry pie filling, concentrated cake mix powder, etc. Not to mention there were a lot of uncooked sections because the recipe called for the entire box of cake mix.
For this recipe, I start with a homemade cake mix designed specifically for these dump cakes. It can be made ahead of time and stored in your pantry just like boxed cake mix. It’s not quite as sweet as boxed cake mix and it doesn’t have as many preservatives either. If you’re pressed for time, or don’t have one of the ingredients needed for the cake mix, you can substitute for boxed cake mix and the recipe will still work.
Making this cake is easy peasy.
-First you grease your baking pan and then add berries, cornstarch and sugar. Most dump cake recipes call for canned pie filling, but my recipe makes a fresh pie filling with the blueberries, sugar and cornstarch and it barely takes any extra time.
-Next you add you’re cake mix over the berries.
-Then you add some slices of butter and sprinkle on some more berries.
And into the oven it goes! It’s that easy.
The fruit on the bottom and the butter on top will help cook the cake mix. My recipe also calls for less cake mix to reduce sweetness and prevent any uncooked sections when it’s done baking. I recommend checking on the cake about 2/3 of the way through, to make sure all the cake mix is in the bubbling mixture and gets cooked. But for this cake, I usually don’t have to do anything.
Allow the cake to cool and stop bubbling before serving. I love eating this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
For me, this is the perfect summer recipe. But you can make it year-round. The book provides ways to substitute and switch between frozen, fresh, and canned fruit. If you enjoy this recipe, I hope you’ll consider buying my new cookbook Dump Cakes from Scratch. (Affiliate links contained in this post.)
