Blueberry cobbler with cake mix and pie filling is a quick easy dessert idea! Use any fruit, yellow cake mix or any flavor you like. Just one of our many dry cake mix recipes you can whip up for a party or the holidays.
You could call this a blueberry dump cake of sorts, but the texture is more like our peach cobbler with cake mix. We made both of these in the past month and they have been a huge hit in our house. Cheap to make, family friendly, and you can tweak it to make a ton of different combinations. (affiliate links present)
Cake Mix Blueberry Cobbler
We’re back with another cake mix hack y’all!! That is right, if you have never made a 3 ingredient cake before this is where you should start. Well, 4 if you want to pretty it up with a little bit of fresh fruit too but that is optional. I mean…..and vanilla ice cream is an incredible topping when it is served up too. 😉
I made blueberry dump cupcakes with just the filling and mix years and years ago. They were so good we just made those again and again, still do today. Changing it up a bit though is our thang, and this is one tweak. Adding that stick of butter transforms it into a crumbly, moist, sticky treat.
Blueberry Cobbler with Lemon Cake Mix
Lemon and blueberry would be a great combination too. I used white as you could see here but yellow would be the other choice.
Occasionally I have found unique fruit flavors but blueberry is super rare. This is where the swapping comes into play. Not only can you change out the flavors of mix but of fillings too. A few ideas that I think would work really well would be;
- Spice cake mix or yellow with apple pie filling like our apple cobbler with cake mix
- or with pumpkin puree for pumpkin dump cake without condensed milk which is great for Fall months
- Carrot cake mix would be great with canned or homemade Instant Pot apple pie filling if you ask me, on my list to try that next
- White cake mix and yellow really can be folded in with any fruit filling
- Strawberry boxed mix with cherry pie filling – we did this with our cherry pie filling dump cake
Beyond these two ingredients you just need a stick of butter, you’ll need to melt that and not just room temperature. This will be the liquid to moisten the dry ingredient into a sort of batter.
I use salted so you don’t have to add a pinch of that into the mix either. Makes everything easier. If you need a lactose free sweet treat that is possible too!
Yes! I make dump cakes with vegan butter from Country Crock all the time for my husband and there is no difference in the texture or flavor.
I will say some brands are better than others, we like this one best. It comes in sticks for baking and tubs for toast in the morning.
Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake
Let’s talk about baking pans for this type of quick easy dessert. You will want it to be non stick. Personally I like using a porcelain coated casserole dish if it is clean. If not I will use aluminum but spray the inside well so it scoops out without any waste.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, combine the cake mix and melted butter.
- Mix until you have a crumbly texture.
- Spray the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.
- Spread the blueberry pie filling evenly in the pan.
- Add 1 cup of fresh blueberries (optional), followed by the cake mixture.
- Top with a few additional fresh blueberries, if desired.
- Spray the top of my cake with a bit of cooking spray to moisten the top of the cake a little more
- (This helps the top to get a golden brown color. – This is not required)
- Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly.
Carefully remove from the oven, let cool, add scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of each serving (optional) and enjoy.
Yellow Cake Mix with Blueberries
Adding fresh fruit into the mix is always a win. You don’t need much but if you are making this one grab 1 of those little containers of fresh berries to sprinkle into the mix. Gives it a bit more freshness and texture in every bite. The canned ones are much softer, like defrosted frozen berries so adding new in there is quite nice.
Did you know you could make this easy blueberry dessert yet another way?? Listen to this!! You can use the same dry mix + 1 egg + 1 stick of butter to make a sugar cookie pie crust with just these 3 ingredients. Just mix into a dough, press into your pie plate, bake for a bit, then add your filling and heat again.
I mean I could literally go on and on when it comes to easy blueberry cobbler recipe tweaks. I am sure you might have your own cake mix cobbler ideas that I haven’t even mentioned. Jump to recipe to get started and then let us know below if you swapped things around to try another we haven’t mentioned yet. We are always up for making this again!
Blueberry Dump Cake
If you find a sale on mixes you should load up! White can be used for all things like cookies, pie crusts and treats like this one or this biscoff cake recipe. There are so many possibilities once you have the base on hand. 😉
How to store leftover cobbler – always wait until it cools completely, then transfer into a sealed container and into the fridge it goes. Reheat in a microwave safe bowl with a paper towel on top for about 1 minute!
