Don't Be Blue...Berry Cake!

I had the good fortune of finding blueberries on sale this week at our local Price Chopper. They were buy 1 get 2 free! How could I pass that up? So now I have 6 packages. Well, some will go on cereal, but the rest is going into a cake. I found this recipe last year on Cooks.com and it is a tasty cake and a nice take-a-long to a party where you have been elected to bring the dessert!

Server with some nice whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on the side. And if you have the blues? Well, they will be gone for sure, once you taste this cake!

1 20-oz can crushed pineapple
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 lb. butter

Dump pineapple into ungreased cake pan. Dump blueberries on top. Dump dry cake mix on top and spread evenly. Sprinkle pecans over top and pour melted butter over all. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve warm or cold.

See????Blue...being down in the dumps???? There has to be a message here somewhere.....


  1. Hi Linda...Blueberries were on sale at my grocery store, too. I don't remember ever seeing that in the middle of the winter before! Usually we just have these tiny boxes from New Zealand for $5.00! These were the larger size and they were from NJ...what's up with that???...Debbie
