Here's how to make Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake:
Start with all of your ingredients and preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grab a 13 x 9 baking dish and grease it evenly.
Pour your pineapples (with the juice!) into the baking dish and top evenly with your blueberries. Next, shake your cake mix on top of the pineapple and blueberry mixture. Melt your butter and drizzle over the top. DON'T MIX!
Then, bake for 45 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown on top. Serve warm on it's own, with some vanilla ice cream, or homemade whipped cream on top of the cake. Delicious!

Just made this! Used a 20 oz can of pineapple chunks (what I had on hand) and just crushed them up a bit with a fork. Used 2 cups fresh blueberries. Used a box of spice cake mix. It is delicious! I do wish it held together a little more, as when you scoop it out, it just essentially falls apart. I would probably do 1.5 cups blueberries next time also, but the spice cake version is great!!
What size pan do you use for this recipe? Tha k you.
Hi Eve! It was a 9×13 pan ~ hope that helps! 🙂

Can you use chocolate chips instead of blueberry. Don’t like blueberry.
Can you use white cake mix instead of yellow? Bought white by mistake
I think that would be totally fine Virginia! 🙂
Can you use canned fruit in place of the fresh or frozen?
Hmm, you probably could if you drain it Deb! 🙂
Brenda Burgess says
can you use 1 stick of butter and some other kind of liquid in place of the second stick of butter?
Sure Brenda! It may not be as good, but as long as you have the liquid I am sure it’ll be fine! 🙂
Might also try it with peaches or apricots. I’ll use my family’s made from scratch cake mix (w/o eggs) and substitute Stevia and seltzer H2O, instead of sugar & milk to make a healthier, diabetic version.
My youngest daughter taught me to use seltzer water and no eggs w/box cake mixes. Was surprised I couldn’t taste difference, except cake texture was lighter and not too dense. A nice alternate dessert option!
Sue Pelham says
Picture does not show crushed pineapple! what is correct crushed or chunks?
So sorry! I crushed them up myself (bc I accidentally grabbed the wrong can – ha!) so YES, crushed pineapple Sue! 🙂
Connie C. says
Do you think you can make it without the pineapple?
I don’t think it can be because you need the extra liquid Connie? It’s really (shockingly) not all that pineapple tasting if that helps at all 🙂
I’ve made this with fresh blueberries and 1 can of blueberry pie filling and it is delicious.
I’ve also made with a can of cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple. Both are definitely my favorites.
So good to know Donna ~ thanks a bunch for sharing! 🙂
Yes, I never add pineapple. I do add some extra blueberries.
Do you drain the juice in the crushed pineapple?
I did drain off a little pineapple (maybe a tablespoonful or so), just because I thought it would be too liquidy. Also, be sure to only use 15 OZ. CAN PINEAPPLE, or just that much out of a larger can! I made it another time in a hurry from memory and used a larger can of pineapple which was too much. Let me know how it goes!
Can you use frozen bluberries?
I’ve never tried it with frozen berries, and am a little afraid it would be watery…. if you try it let me know! (I wonder if you really thoroughly defrost and drain them first maybe?)
I’ll let you know later. Mines in the oven now. I used frozen blueberries but I very little of the pineapple juice. A top I also read was to cut the butter into parts so you can spread it out evenly over the cake mix. That way you won’t have dry mix spots.

Frozen blueberries are fine.
Hey Faye! You can use frozen blueberries! I have used frozen blueberries and strawberries before! It tastes good either way!! 🙂
I always use frozen blueberries. I also sprinkle with nuts.
