One of my Granny Austin’s most loved desserts (by me, anyway!) was her Blueberry Dump Cake. And anytime I make it, its always gone in one sitting. Perfect for company, potlucks, or just a quick and easy dessert for a weeknight treat, you can never go wrong with dump cake! You can substitute fresh or frozen fruit and it doesn’t have to be blueberries – strawberries, peaches, or apples work great, too. Even just double up on the crushed pineapple! The skies the limit – or the pan. 😉 Happy dumping!

Going to try this today. Question if I use actual blueberries … do you mean 1 to 2 cups or 1/2 cup? I’m thinking 1 to 2, but just checking. Thanks.
Made it, loved it!!!
Just made your Granny’s dump cake with peach pie filling. Super duper!Bette Nyman
I made one; Cherry.
I used a cast iron fry pan that was a bit too small. There was some powdery cake mix, but overall a darn good cake!
