Do I need to stir the cake ingredients for a dump cake?
No! That is one of the great things about dump cakes is that you sprinkle the dry cake mix over the fruit filling and you do not need to follow the instructions on the box of cake mix.
Step 1 - Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2 - Spread both cans of blueberry pie filling into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Spread out evenly with spatula.
Step 3 - Sprinkle the dry cake mix on top of the blueberry pie filling in baking dish. Do not mix!
Step 4 - Cut stick of butter into squares and place them evenly on top of the cake mix. Do not stir the mixture. The butter will melt over the dry cake mix to form a crust as it is cooking.
Tip: Cold butter is much easier to cut into squares. Keep the butter in the refrigerator until you're ready to cut it into squares.
Step 6 - Bake in 350°F oven for 50 to 55 minutes. Top should be light golden brown and pie filling will be bubbling at the edges when it is ready.
Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream and enjoy this tasty dessert!
Cool dessert, then cover with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
