Blueberry Crunch Dump Cake has a bottom layer of crushed pineapple and fresh, sugared blueberries. A yellow cake mix is poured over the fruit and topped with melted butter, pecans, and a sprinkling of sugar. This is the perfect summertime dessert!
Summer means blueberry season here in South Carolina. I love to pick blueberries and make this Blueberry Crunch Dump Cake.
This dump cake is such an easy dessert to make and is perfect for Sunday dessert. I like to serve this cake warm with big scoops of vanilla ice cream. Dump cakes are not that pretty but they sure do taste good. It’s the sugar and nuts on top that add the crunch factor.

What’s A Dump Cake?
A dump cake reminds me of a cobbler. It’s made by dumping fruit into a baking pan, pouring a cake mix on top and drizzling with butter and topping with nuts. A dump cake is an easy dessert to make that tastes so much better than it sounds.
I’ve also made dump cakes with cherry pie filling and pineapple. If blueberries are not your thing, try the cherry pie filling instead of the blueberries.
How To Make Blueberry Crunch Dump Cake
Spread crushed pineapple (juice included) in a lightly greased 9×13 baking pan.
Add the fresh blueberries.
Sprinkle granulated sugar over the blueberries.
Pour the dry cake mix evenly over the sugared blueberries.
Drizzle melted butter over the cake mix.
Add the nuts (I always use pecans) and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Bake at 350º for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.
