Blueberry Crunch



Sometimes I'll make a dish that I haven't made in a long time and wonder why I waited so long to make it.  I had forgotten about this recipe until last week when I saw a friend post on facebook that blueberries were on sale at Kroger for 99 cents a pint!  I was right in the middle of making my grocery list and of course added blueberries.  My kids love them and I know they are good for you but they are usually pretty pricey.  I stocked up (because you can freeze them) and came home to make this yummy recipe that I got from Grant's Mamaw when we were newlyweds.  Some eat it for breakfast.  I consider it more of a dessert.  I have seen this recipe made with strawberries instead of blueberries and minus the pecans, but this is how we like it.  It is a very quick dish to make!

Ingredients:
1 box yellow cake mix
20 oz. crushed pineapple, undrained
3 cups blueberries
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Spread pineapple in 9 x 13 dish.
3.  Spread blueberries on top of pineapples.
4.  Sprinkle with sugar.
5.  Pat dry cake mix over all.
6.  Drizzle butter over cake mix.
7.  Top with pecans.
8.  Bake for about 45 minutes.
