Blueberry Dump Cake

This deceptively simple dessert requires little preparation and delivers big flavor, with just blueberries, cake mix, sugar and butter.

Tips & Notes

• Fresh blueberries will work for this recipe; however, add a bit more sugar because fresh blueberries aren’t always very sweet. You can also try this recipe with fresh or frozen blackberries, strawberries or raspberries – or all three
