Delicious Blueberry Pudding Cake
This blueberry pudding cake is like a dump cake but with all homemade ingredients. Even making this completely from scratch, this is a truly simple cake to make with only a few common ingredients. Serve this cake warm from the oven or at room temperature, topped with ice cream, for an amazing dessert that everyone will enjoy.
How To Warm This Blueberry Pudding Cake
If you love the idea of this cake warm with vanilla ice cream, you can reheat the individual servings in the microwave for up to 30 seconds, depending on the strength of the microwave. You want to warm the cake but not make it hot. Top the cake with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for a decadent treat.
How to Store Fresh Blueberry Pudding Cake
Once the pudding cake has cooled, make sure that the cake is covered well. Cover the baking dish with a tight fitting lid or with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. The cake will last up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Can Frozen Blueberries be Used Instead
If you want to use frozen blueberries instead of fresh, let the blueberries thaw completely and try to dry the moisture out as best you can. Frozen blueberries will give the pudding a slightly more watery texture.
Can This Cake be Frozen
If you have more cake than you can eat before it goes bad, you can also freeze the blueberry pudding cake. You will want to move the cake to an airtight container or a freezer bag. This will give the cake the most protection against freezer burn. The cake will stay good in the freezer for up to 3 months as long as it is sealed well.
Can Box Cake Be Used for Blueberry Pudding Cake
If you want to skip making the dry cake mix for this recipe, you can use a store bought cake mix. Instead of making the dry ingredients for the cake topping, you will use the dry cake mix instead. You will not be making the cake into a batter. Everything in the blueberry pudding cake will be the same.
Will Blueberry Pie Filling Work in this Dump Cake
If you prefer to not use fresh blueberries and want to skip a step for this recipe, you can use canned blueberry pie filling. The downside of using a premade filling is that you are not in control of what goes into the cake. Also, the amount of blueberries in the pie filling isn’t as much as in this recipe so you will have more of the filling than the actual blueberries.
