Do any of you great bakers out there have this recipe? I would like to make it for Easter. All I know is that it's a very moist cake, easy to make, and has pineapple in it. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, msgracie

ok here goes 1 yellow cake

ok here goes
1 yellow cake mix with pudding
1 8oz crushed pineapple with juices
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas about 3
1 jar maraschino cheery halves drained small- med jar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup veg oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans toasted

preheat oven to 350 " while oven is preheating toast pecans"
spray a 12 cup bundt pan with non stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix on low 1 minute the cake mix, pineapple with juice
bananas, water, oil, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon. Scrape down sides
and continue mixing for 2 minutes. Stir in by hand cherries and 1/2 cup pecans. Batter will be thick. Pour into your coated bundt pan and bake 50- 60 minutes
Cool in pan 20 minutes then invert and cool completely.
Frost with cream cheese frosting.

Cream cheese frosting
3 cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter softened
1 8 oz cream cheese softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a bowl mix cream cheese and butter till creamy
add powdered sugar a cup at a time add vanilla and mix well
frost cooled cake.

If you had rather make layered cakes it will probably make a 3layer cake just spray your cake pans and bake about 30 min.
I have another recipe not using cake mix if you had rather make it from scratch
