Berry crisp dump cake is only 5 ingredients and one pan! Juicy mixed berries covered in an easy cake mix, oatmeal, walnuts, and melted butter mixture. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious dessert.
Happy Monday! It was quite the busy weekend for us. I always look forward to Mondays because it feels like a fresh start. Some people may hate Mondays but honestly, it’s probably my favorite day and the one day I am most productive. My productivity just goes down hill from there ….. 🙂
My 5 year old had her dance recital over the weekend and can I just say that watching 4 and 5 year olds dance is just about the cutest thing ever!
I realize that calling this a ‘dump cake’ is not the most appealing name in the world. But, if you’re familiar with a traditional ‘dump cake’ it usually involves a cake mix (yay for easy, right?!) that gets sprinkled on top of something in a baking dish. I have this pumpkin pie pecan cobbler on the blog that is a dump cake.
One of the things that I have never liked about dump cakes is that when you sprinkle the cake mix on top and then drizzle with melted butter, you end up with some dry pockets of cake mix. I am not crazy about eating that so I knew there had to be a better way. Which is how this beautiful berry crisp dump cake was born.
I’m obsessed with all things crisps, cobblers, and crumbles so it was no wonder this was a hit. It seriously is only 5 ingredients! Frozen berries which are great because you don’t have to worry about spending a small fortune on fresh berries or trying to hurry up and use them before they go bad (which is always my problem).
Dump frozen berries in your baking dish and then in a separate bowl combine cake mix, walnuts, oats, and melted butter. Stir together and then spread it out evenly on top of the berries. That’s it!
I love the addition of walnuts and oats. They bring so much texture to this dish and help cut out the sweetness from the cake mix. DO NOT skip the scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. There are few things better than a scoop of ice cream on top of a warm fruit crisp.
I hope you love this one! Oh, and I should mention that you want to use a yellow cake mix. Don’t be like me and grab the butter yellow cake mix. While it was good, it had an overwhelming butter flavor. Or, I did see a French vanilla cake mix that would probably be delish too.

- 2 bags (12-15 oz each) frozen mixed berries
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
- Spread out frozen berries in the bottom of the dish.
- In a mixing bowl, combine yellow cake mix (DO NOT prepare), melted butter, oats, and walnuts. Stir together until thick crumbles form.
- Sprinkle evenly over the frozen berries.
- Cook for 50-55 minutes. Crisp topping will be a golden brown and the berries will be bubbling.
- Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I'm not sure why, but all cake mix boxes are different weights/sizes. As long as you find a cake mix box that is between 15 oz- 18 oz, then you are good.
