Time For A Treat: Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake

This is absolutely the yummiest, easiest cobbler recipe I’ve ever tried, and while I was little scared off by the pineapple at first, our family absolutely loved it!   You all won’t believe what a deal this one is (or how yummy!), and . . .  oh my goodness – YUMMMMMMM!!!

  1. You can do this with pretty much any fruit and flavored cake mix!! I’ve done strawberries and cherries and chocolate cake mix..yummy!! You can do it with just pineapple….the choices are pretty much endless! You just have to make sure the fruit is liquidy enough for the cake mix to soak up….I’ve added fruit juice to help it out before!!! sooooooo easy!

    • Oh, and also, I don’t even melt the butter. I just cut it up in small squares and layer over the top!! Works fine

      • Thanks for the tips Brandy – I love the idea of trying it with different flavors! (This stuff is soooooo good!)

  2. You can skip the butter and use a can of 7up or Sprite instead. Diet soda works too.

  3. Do you mix all of the juice from the pineapple or do you drain it?

        • So glad you liked it – and such fun to spend the morning in jammies! (I think I may add that to our summer to-do list . . . leave it to a mom to have to schedule that!)
