Pineapple Blueberry Dump Cake

Dump cake was one of those desserts my mom would make when she needed something last minute. It was perfect because she almost always had the ingredients in the pantry, ready to throw together if unexpected guests came calling. I didn’t appreciate the genius of it when I was growing up. I just thought it was ridiculously yummy! Now I count it among one of my go to desserts if I am in a pinch. The combination possibilities are endless, but this pineapple blueberry dump cake is my favorite version.

The beauty of this pineapple blueberry dump cake was that I didn't have to stir a darn thing. I layered a can of crushed pineapple in my pan first. Then I layered a can of blueberry pie filling on top of the pineapple.

The cake portion of the pineapple blueberry dump cake was simply a box of yellow cake mix. I spread it out evenly on top of the fruit. Then I sprinkled chopped pecans on top for some crunch. The last touch was to distribute butter on the very top to make the dessert luscious.

The pineapple blueberry dump cake baked for about 50 minutes. The layers melded together so gloriously! I let it cool for about 15 minutes so that it wasn't screaming hot when we ate it. I still wanted it nice and warm though!

I scooped it out onto plates with fresh blueberries on top to give extra juicy bursts of flavor. Oh my goodness, it was just how I remembered by mom’s! I loved how the tart pineapple contrasted with the sweet blueberries. The yellow cake was the perfect vehicle to carry all of that flavor. This pineapple blueberry dump cake was pure simplicity that still could impress company. Hope you all enjoy this fruity, amazing treat!
