Blueberry Crackle Cake

I love this recipe for its versatility. I made it blueberry flavoured, but you could easily substitute in another pie filling. I bet lemon or cherry would be just as yummy! It was originally supposed to be a Lemon Crackle Cake, but our grocery store didn’t have any lemon pie filling so blueberry it is! The substitution was fine with me.

The base is a blend of crushed soda crackers, brown sugar, flour and coconut. I recommend letting it cool completely so it had a chance to harden and you get that delicious sweet crunch with every bite.
