Healthyish Blueberry Dump Cake

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by sherininja

I modified dump cake recipe to save some calories but keep the yum factor. Sometimes I still add a pat or two of butter to the top for kicks. Frozen blueberries or canned can be substituted. Any berry would work- have tried raspberry-strawberry combo, super yummy. Grated lemon is a great addition too, especially if using "homemade buttermilk' (milk with a tablespoon of lemon juice)

I used Pillsbury's sugar-free yellow cake mix. The flavor is good, but there is not enough liquid to cover all the dry cake mix. The dry mix left a slightly funny aftertaste. I took this cake to work and my coworkers enjoyed it. The average ratings came out 3 1/2 stars. I am giving it 4 stars because it is "healthyish." Made for My 3 Chefs October 2013.
