A great cake recipe to use those sweet summer black berries! Dump cakes aren't anything new, but most recipe are made using canned pie filling. This recipe is a bit different because it uses fresh blackberries and another ingredient that makes this dump cake very berry is............. blackberry Jell-O.

Step 1

I used fresh blackberries that had been frozen. If using frozen berries make sure to drain off any of the juice before adding them. Also decrease your water to 1/2 cup.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread berries into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Mix jell-O and sugar together and sprinkle over the berries. Sprinkle the cake mix over the jell-o and berries. If using nuts add them now. Pour the melted butter over the cake mix and then slowly add the water.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and when a tooth pick is inserted to the cake and comes out clean.

Let cool and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
