Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake

I've been making this Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake in the summertime for years, and every time I see blueberries go on sale I can't wait to whip it up!


It's super simple to make, takes about 3 minutes to dump together, then bake for 45 minutes and serve up with cool whip or your favorite vanilla ice cream. Super simple and easy to make ~ and always a winner at our house!


Here's all you need to get started . . .

blueberry cobbler dump cake ingredients

Fill the bottom of your 9×13 baking dish with blueberries.

Layer on the crushed pineapple.

Sprinkle cake mix over top of blueberries & pineapples.

Drizzle melted butter over cake mix.

Bake for 45 minutes, serve warm and enjoy!

How to Make Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake

  • 2 cups blueberries 
  • 2 sticks of melted butter or margarine

  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
  2. Put blueberries and pineapple in 9×13 baking dish or casserole.

  1. 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?)

        • Hey Faye! You can use frozen blueberries! I have used frozen blueberries and strawberries before! It tastes good either way!! 🙂

  2. 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 🙂

  3. Sue Pelham says

    Picture does not show crushed pineapple! what is correct crushed or chunks?

  4. 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!

  5. Brenda Burgess says

    can you use 1 stick of butter and some other kind of liquid in place of the second stick of butter?
