Blueberry Pineapple Crunch Cake Pin

Over 4th of July weekend we went up to the North Carolina mountains to spend unplugged time with our family.  We relaxed in a nice little mountain cottage that was once a workshop that my father-in-law literally transformed.  To add to my rurally revitalizing weekend, we got an invitation by a cousin to come over and pick fresh blueberries to our hearts content.  As soon as I picked my first berry the taste of my mom’s blueberry pineapple crunch cake recipe started churning in my senses.  Berry by berry I was forging my way to a delicious desert that was super simple to make!

Then we returned home.  I’m not sure how many berries actually made it in the bowls verses bellies because my husband, mother-in-law and son are some berry eating people. Here is a picture of my son who was literally using two hands to shove fist fulls of berries in his mouth.

Begin making the dessert by preheating oven to 350 and adding blueberries to a large glass baking dish.  I fill it about 1/4 of the way full with blueberries.  I find that longer pans work better with this recipe.  So I would choose a 9 X 13 over an 8 X 8 because the smaller pans just don’t bake up right for me.Blueberry Pineapple Crunch Cake 4

Add a can of pineapple tidbits (since I can’t pick those in the NC mountains).Blueberry Pineapple Crunch Cake 5

Scatter 1 box of yellow cake mix over the top of the berry and pineapple layer.

Bake in the oven of 350 for 30 minutes or until cake looks more cake-y than water-y.Blueberry Pineapple Crunch Cake 9 Blueberry Pineapple Crunch Cake 10

I prefer to serve it warm with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream.  It is also delicious cold or at room temperature.Blueberry Pineapple Crunch Cake 11I hope this blueberry pineapple crunch cake recipe gives you something delicious to savor the flavors of summer with.   Please feel free to share any of your favorite blueberry desserts in the comments section below.  Or if you like cherries more than blueberries, check out my cherry crunch cake recipe here.
