What You Need To Make This Blueberry Dump Cake Recipe?
Cake Mix as a Canvas: Choosing between yellow cake mix in this recipe goes beyond preference; it opens the door to creativity. While white cake mix provides a slate that accentuates the tartness of blueberries the yellow mix adds a buttery depth that beautifully complements the natural sweetness of the fruit.
Unsalted Butter: Opting for unsalted butter allows the true flavors of the ingredients to shine. It seamlessly blends with the cake mix resulting in a golden crust that offers a crunch and satisfaction.
Blueberry Pie Filling: Using blueberry pie filling is a trick, for busy bakers. It ensures taste and texture guaranteeing each slice is brimming with a balance of sweetness and luscious blueberry flavor.
Fresh Blueberries: Incorporating blueberries introduces a contrast – bursts of fresh and juicy tanginess that punctuate the sweetness of the pie filling. This combination of both canned blueberries creates a layered sensory experience.
Steps To Make Blueberry Dump Cake:
Step 1: Begin by preheating your oven to 350 F. Then, take a moment to lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
Step 2: Pour both cans of blueberry pie filling into the pan, spreading them to hide the pan’s bottom.
Step 3: Gently, scatter the dry cake mix over the filling, aiming for an even layer. Dot the surface with butter pats, then artistically sprinkle fresh blueberries on top.
Step 4: Bake this masterpiece for 45 minutes, or until it boasts a golden brown crown.
Step 5: I love serving it warm, sometimes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for added bliss. It’s a simple joy that tastes like home.
When you’re putting together your Blueberry Dump Cake it’s an idea to make different layers using both the pie filling and fresh blueberries. Start off by adding a layer of the pie filling at the bottom then sprinkle some blueberries on top and finally lightly dust it with cake mix. Repeat these steps until you’ve used up all the ingredients. This method helps create a flavor combination and varied texture in every bite. The layers of canned blueberries will blend together beautifully giving you alternating bursts of freshness and a rich sweet blueberry taste that will make each slice of cake a delightful surprise.
