Ingredients

      1 pkg. (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
      1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) vanilla flavor instant pudding & pie filling
      4 eggs
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
      1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      1 can (20 oz.) DOLE® Crushed Pineapple, 
      juice drained and 1 cup reserved
      2 medium, ripe DOLE Bananas, well mashed (1 cup)
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
        Cream Cheese Glaze (recipe below)

Directions

    • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
    • Combine cake mix, dry instant pudding, cinnamon, reserved pineapple juice, eggs and oil in large bowl with mixer 2 minutes, or until blended.  Add crushed pineapple, bananas and nuts; mix just until blended.
    • Pour prepared batter into 5 foil mini loaf pans sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Bake 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.  Cool completely.
    • Drizzle Cream Cheese Glaze over cooled loaves.  Garnish with additional chopped pecans, if desired.

    Cream Cheese Glaze:  Combine 2 oz. softened cream cheese with 1 tablespoon milk and 1/2 cup powdered sugar; drizzle over cooled loaves.


    Variation:  Omit DOLE Bananas, substitute with 1 cup Maraschino cherries, drained and cut in half and remove ground cinnamon.
