Monthly Archives: August 2013


This is the recipe Kim Neumann brought one night that everyone LOVED so much


I’m going to “add-lib” a bit as we have made this several times and each time we use different fruit.


Cover the bottom of a 9X13 with blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Sprinkle ½  C. sugar over blueberries

Add 1 lg. can crushed pineapple (only use ½ the juice – drink the rest – its YUMMY) over the sugar

1 pkg cake mix (white/yellow – whatever flavor you want) – sprinkle JUST the dry cake mix over your fruit

Melt 1 stick of margarine and drizzle over the top

½ C. chopped pecans over the top (we have used almonds also used walnuts – walnuts stayed real nice and crunchy)


Bake for ½ hr. at 350 degrees



We have tried it with rhubarb, raspberries   just about whatever fruit(s) you want I think would be great
