Blueberry Crunch Cake (Paula Deen)

READY IN: 48mins
Recipe by pamela t.

This recipe comes from Jan Barley of Evergreen, North Dakota, a reader of Cooking with Paula Deen. This is an easy "dump" cake and couldn't be more tasty. My husband loved this. And yes, it has butter--Paula Deen's favorite ingredient!

I was just asked to make this again! Everyone loved it, I left the nuts out for fear of allergies at group parties, but it still tastes great. I have used blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry pie filling. All taste great! Thanks for this super easy and super quick recipe. Best one so far!
