  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Combine cake mix, water, eggs, and vegetable oil in a large bowl; mix until moistened. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until batter is smooth, about 2 minutes.
  3. Spread blueberries in the bottom of the baking pan. Layer sugar, gelatin, and marshmallows on top. Pour cake mix evenly over marshmallows and smooth the top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Transfer baking pan to a wire rack and let cool, about 30 minutes. Serve cake with whipped topping.

Go by baking time on cake box not in recipe directions. Cake was completely over baked at 40 mins. Not sure why directions say 50-55 mins. It was good even though it was dry. Did not notice the ...

This was really good, and my family loved it. I took the advice of other reviewers and used 1/2 cup sugar. I didn't have strawberry jello, so I used lemon instead. It was good. No one knew m...

I am new to baking , just want to know that do you have to mix jello in water or use it in a powder form with sugar while layering it with blueberries?

Easy & pretty darn good. Looking forward to trying it with other fruit. It reminds me of pineapple upside down cake.
