This came from one of those Bake Sale Cookbooks and it's simple to make and turned out pretty good, although I think they could use "a little something" to perk them up. Suggestions, all?

  • 1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 12 cup butter, softened, divided
  • 1 12 cups quick oats, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple pie filling
  • 13 cup brown sugar, packed


  1. Preheat oven to 350. With mixer or pastry blender, beat cake mix, 5 tablespoons of the butter, and 1 cup of the oats. Mix until crumbly and then set aside 1 cup of this mixture for the topping.
  2. Combine egg and the remaining mixture and stir well. Press into 9 x 13" pan that has been greased and floured. Spread the pineapple pie filling evenly over the crust.
  3. In the same bowl, combine the reserved crumb mixture, the remaining oats, 3 tablespoons butter and the brown sugar and blend well. Sprinkle over the pineapple filling and bake for about 35 minutes or until light brown on top.
