We had a long weekend off so my girls and I got to baking! We like really easy recipes and were thrilled at how well our 3 ingredient blueberry pie filling dump cake cupcakes turned out! Now on the list as one of our favorite easy dump cake recipes! (originally published 2/18, affiliate links present)
We are all too familiar with the traditional dump cake recipe but I like this method better. It’s lighter and rises much more than previous recipes we’ve tried.
They were so delicious, moist, and only took about 5 minutes to put together before throwing them into the oven to rise.
You could easily use other types of pie filling like cherry but my very favorite pie, cake, pastry, and fruit in general is blueberry. I am sure we will continue on with the others in the future since this one turned out so well. 😉
We started fooling with the “old fashioned” dump cake idea when we got our pressure cooker and made this yummy Instant Pot dump cake. We used apple pie filling for that one and it was really yummy!
I kept thinking because I thought it would be even easier if I could transfer that idea into cupcakes.
Even better, using mini cupcake pan so you could pop them into your mouth. I mean what a yummy breakfast or dessert right? They were a real hit.
Yep, this is what you’re going to need. If you’ve made a dump cake in the past you typically don’t use eggs, rather you use butter.
I found that those came out really flat and didn’t rise very much at all no matter what device you were cooking them in.
I prefer my baked goods to rise and be fluffy so I knew substituting eggs for that butter would probably do the trick and they did!
Blueberry pie filling dump cake cupcakes
- Cake mix – I used white, you could use really any flavor or brand
- Pie filling – used this blueberry filling but you could use another fruit or make your own homemade pie filling to use
- If making mini cupcakes like we did you’ll need these tiny cupcake liners
Don’t already have a mini muffin pan? this is the one I love
Time needed: 14 minutes.
In a bowl mix together your cake mix of choice and eggs. Then add your can of pie filling. Fold together very gently until all (or most, there will be specks left) of your cake mix is combined well.
Use cupcake liners or spray your pan with non stick spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Fill your muffin cups 3/4 full and bake for 14 minutes for mini cupcakes, or 18 – 20 minutes for regular size cupcakes.
Remove when top springs back when you touch them gently.
Same method you see here with this easy blueberry pie filling dump cake. I suggest you make those brownies after this with cherry, they’re winners too.
You’ll love our zucchini blueberry muffins too.
