Easy Blackberry Cobbler a.k.a. Dump Cake

This is my hubby’s favorite dessert, so I made it for his birthday a few weeks ago.  It is SO stinkin’ easy, I almost feel guilty that I didn’t spend hours concocting a masterpiece.  It is truly dumping and cooking.  For those of you who are ok to use all that pre-packaged food every once in a while (I suppose you could also use fresh fruit and blend it). I introduce to you, Easy Blackberry Cobbler.  When people try it, they attempt to figure out the secret ingredient.

Easy Blackberry Cobbler


1 21-oz. can of blackberry pie filling

1 21 oz. can of crushed pineapple (juice included)

1 box of yellow cake mix

¾  C melted butter

1 C chopped pecans


Pour pineapple (first) and blackberry filling in an ungreased 9×13 in. glass dish. Top it off with dry yellow cake mix and pecans. Pour melted butter over cake mix. Bake in preheated oven for 45 min. at 350.

We prefer to eat it chilled, but I’m sure warm with vanilla ice cream would also be delicious!

    Remember when we had that for Thanksgiving dessert in 2008? Love it! I actually won “Best Pie” at a pie baking contest this year with this exact recipe. So easy and delicious.

  3. This is a regular dessert ayt my house, except I use blueberry pie filling and walnuts. So delicious! I’ve also made it with cherry pie filling and chunky applesauce instead of pineapple. So good and so easy!! Oh, and I just cut the butter into pats and lay it out on top of the nuts. Then I (so lazy) don’t even have to melt the butter.
