What You'll Need
- 1 (18.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix
- 1 (4-serving-size) package vanilla instant pudding and pie filling
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, well drained with juice reserved
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 ripe banana, cut up
- 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup chopped maraschino cherries, well drained
- 1/3 cup prepared cream cheese frosting
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine cake and pudding mixes, the oil, pineapple, eggs, and cinnamon. Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to make 1 cup; add it to the bowl then beat with an electric mixer until mixture is thoroughly combined.
- Stir in banana, pecans, and cherries; mix well then pour into prepared pan.
- Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan 20 to 25 minutes, then invert onto a serving plate. Let cool completely.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, heat cream cheese frosting 10 to 15 seconds. Stir until smooth and pourable then drizzle over cooled cake before slicing.
