Lemon Pineapple Crunch

Gail Welch


We had friends coming over for dinner and I was going to make a peach cobbler but had no peaches, only crushed pineapple. I was going to use a yellow cake mix, too. When I went to the cupboard for my cake mix it was "Lemon" not yellow. I decided to go ahead. It actually turned out very good and rich. If you like lemon you'll love the tartness and sweet crunch of this recipe. Taste like lemon pie!
