With three summer holidays to celebrate our country and military service members, it was time for a new dessert. I found it with this red, white, and blue cake.

I love to decorate my home and porch with red, white and blue from Memorial Day to Labor Day, but it was time to add a new dessert.

This is my go-to red, white and blue dessert for the summer holidays, but this 4 ingredient dump cake is a new favorite recipe. If you are a regular here at Everyday Edits you know my recipes tend to go sideways.


That’s it! 4 ingredients and 45 minutes to make and bake this moist, yellow cake. Make sure to read my notes after the recipe.


  • Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 1 can blueberry pie filling
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray a 9×13 baking dish (I use these baking dishes all the time) (use a smaller dish if you want a denser cake) with cooking spray
  • Melt butter
  • Add butter to the cake mix and lightly mix. Set aside for 1 minute.
  • Add (dump) the blueberry and cherry pie filling.
  • Pour the cake batter over the blueberry and cherry filling.
  • Lightly toss the batter to cover the pie filling.
  • Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. **


I baked for 40 minutes because I have a fussy oven. I would add the 5 minutes listed in the direction. The extra five minutes would help set the cake. The two full cans of pie filling were a little much, but I think that is where the extra 5 minutes would have set the cake.

It was a hit for the holiday weekend. I served it in Ramekins like these. Ramekins are perfect for portion control!

I served it with forks, but spoons would work with a side of ice cream.

Thank you for stopping by today. I would love it if you pinned this for others to find!
