  2. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil, pineapple, 1 cup juice and water mixture, eggs and cinnamon in large bowl. Beat at low speed with electric mixer until moistened. Beat a medium speed 2 minutes. Stir in banana, pecans and cherries. Pour into pan.
  3. Bake at 350°F 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 25 minutes. Invert onto serving plate. Sprinkle with icing sugar.

I used butter for the oil and left out the nuts. Homemade cream cheese frosting topped it off. Big hit!

(You'll have to go to the .com website to see the comments from the U.S. where I originally joined....) I listened to most of you. I added the almond, and coconut, increased the bananas, and used the cherry juice to make a glaze. The cake tastes great. The only problem I have is that it is SO MOIST, that the glaze didn`t really want to stay all pretty and pink ON TOP of the cake like it should have. I`ll try to hide this with a sprinkle of icing sugar, but in the end, the cake is OH SO SHAREABLE, and isn`t that all that really matters? We can't get DH yellow cake mix here in Vancouver, so I used the golden mix instead.
