Dump cake, cobbler. Tomato, to-ma-toe. Let’s not trip up on words. To put it plainly, Blueberry Dump Cobbler by any name is so stinking good—and ridiculously simple. It’s essentially a dump cake (the Eleanor Roosevelt of desserts; not much to look at, but it serves a lot of people). However, it looks and serves like a fruit cobbler.

It’s understandable that a dessert involving five or fewer ingredients would be popular with busy home cooks. I was curious about the origins of this “cake”—one that requires the cook to dump ingredients into a pan and bake—and found a reference from October 1967 in several newspapers, including the Kansas City Star.


While there are oodles of variations today, the original dump cake called for a can of crushed pineapple, a can of cherry pie filling, one box of yellow cake mix, chopped pecans and butter. Like the historical Depression Cake (that made a comeback last year during COVID lockdowns), dump cakes do not use milk or eggs (but uses butter).


Most people probably are introduced to dump cakes at pot luck dinners. I know my first bite was savored at a church fish fry in my teen years. Since the 1960s, however, some dump cake recipes have been further streamlined to just three ingredients. I used an example for a Memorial Day recipe this year and shared it on Instagram (if you haven’t yet, click over and follow me for more recipes and tips). However, I thought the pie filling with the cake mix made this dessert super sweet, so I thought I’d experiment by replacing fresh fruit in my next dump cake (cobbler).


I modified a recipe by swapping out the two (21 ounce) cans of blueberry pie filling with fresh blueberries (a quart of fresh plus a cup of frozen). To the blueberries I added ½ cup sugar and the juice and zest of one lemon. Blueberries play well with lemons.


For this recipe, you’ll also need: • 1 (15-ounce) box of white cake mix

• ½ cup cold unsalted butter

The blueberries, sugar and lemon juice makes a jammy sauce that goes into the pan first. Then spread the cake mix over the berries, slice butter and tap them into the cake mix.

When the cobbler comes out of the oven, let it cool for about 10 minutes so the fruit sets a little, but oh man—warm cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream is one of life’s simplest pleasures.
