    This looks amazing, Ruth! We’re huge blueberry fans at my house, especially during the summer.

    Thanks for the great recipe… I could easily make this gluten-free for my kiddos! 😉

    OMG!! We have had this recipe in our family for AGES!!! We call it “Cherry Dessert” because we were not very creative – and that is exactly what it is! I have never actually seen it in print anywhere else besides my grandmothers recipe book! As you probably can guess, we use two cans of cherry filling. PLUS – and this is an amazing addition – we add coconut to the top (under the butter) as well. It is SOOOO good!!! We melt the butter and pour it over the cake mix and coconut but your way would give it a much more evenly distributed butter-ness! 🙂
    This was my mom’s favorite dessert (she passed away 5 years ago) so this post was a nice little memory for me – thank you!

    I make a variation of this using crushed pineapple as the base layer, then blueberry pie filling. I cut one stick of butter into the dry yellow cake mix and sprinkle it on top for a more crumbly crust. We love it! Funny story: we made this “dump cake” and my 4 yo grandson desperately wanted some before bedtime. His idea of “cake” was not the same as this, and so he was caught off guard by his first (huge) bite. He promptly spit it out and began rubbing his tongue saying “this tastes like poop!!” Needless to say, it has been forever renamed “poop cake” at our house! Hahaha!
