  • 4 cups fresh blueberries (or 32 ounces frozen )
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (16 ounce box) vanilla cake mix*
  • ½ cup melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 12 inch round oven safe skillet or baking dish.
  • Add berries to prepared dish and cover with lemon juice.
  • Dump contents of cake mix onto blueberries and shake pan to evenly distribute. Cover with melted butter.
  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 35-45 minutes.


*Weight of cake mixes depends of brands. Its okay if the weight is a little off from the recommended 16 ounces.
  • You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in this dump cake recipe. Just keep in mind that if you use frozen berries, it might increase the baking time.
  • I highly recommend using Trader Joe's Vanilla Cake Mix if that's an option for you.
  • Don't hold back - serve this blueberry dump cake with a big ol' scoop of vanilla ice cream right on top and then try to eat it all before the ice cream completely melts. Oh yes.
