The first time I ever heard of a Dump Cake was when a friend of mine used to make them for potluck occasions at our church. Despite the unusual name, they were delicious! But most recipes make enough for a crowd. I was pleased to be able to make a smaller amount for two of us. I served it with ice cream. Whipped cream would be good, too.

    Spoon half of blueberries into each ramekin. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of preserves over berries. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cake mix evenly over berry mixture.
