Pineapple Blueberry Dump Cake

For the easiest homemade dessert, a dump cake is your best bet. Simply dump all the ingredients into a baking dish then bake. Boxed cake mix forms the batter so you don’t even need to dirty a bowl. The canned pineapple and blueberry pie filling give the cake sweetness and moisture while fresh blueberries add bright pops of flavor. The pecans and almonds on top toast as the cake bakes, bringing some crunch and nuttiness to the dessert.
