How to Make Lemon Blueberry Dump Cake

The dessert is effortless to make. Pour fresh blueberries into a baking dish, sprinkle with sugar and lemon zest. Pour cake mix evenly over blueberries. Cover cake mix with butter pieces and bake.

  • DO NOT make the cake batter. You are using the cake mix dry.
  • You can use any flavor of cake mix that you enjoy. This is great with yellow cake and spice cake.
  • Feel free to add almonds or pecans to the fruit mixture.
  • Can dump cakes be made in the crockpot? Yes! Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.

Great Dessert for a Crowd

This dessert is great for your next cookout or potluck. It tastes great hot out of the oven or cooled to room temperature. As I said, we like this with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is equally delicious with some fresh whipped cream. SO good! Give this a try ASAP! I promise you won’t be disappointed.

  1. I love lemon and blueberries together! I found a gluten free lemon cake mix that is 12 0Z. which most standard cake mixes are 15.25OZ, will this make a difference? Will the ratios of the other ingredients need to change? Can’t wait to make this!

  2. I used 2 cans blueberry pie filling omitted the sugar added extra lemon zest and baked longer around 50 to 55 minutes till the top was golden brown. Delicious and added the vanilla ice cream on top.

  3. Can frozen thawed berries be used? We are more of a huckleberry family – and I have loads of them in my deep freeze just waiting for something delicious to happen to them.

  4. Looks amazing! Love a dish that can be served hot or at room temp — makes it so much easier to transport it to a potluck. Great recipe!
