Dr. Pepper Cake

2 cans dark sweet cherries, pitted and drained, syrup reserved
3/4 C. reserved cherry syrup
1/4 C. Dr. Pepper® (not diet)
1 (3 oz.) box cherry gelatin
1/8 tsp. almond extract
1 (18.25 oz.) box yellow cake mix
1 (3 oz.) box cherry gelatin
1/2 C. vegetable oil
3/4 C. Dr. Pepper® (not diet)
4 eggs
2 C. miniature marshmallows

Arrange cherries evenly on bottom of a greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a small saucepan, combine the cherry syrup, 1 box cherry gelatin and 1/4 cup Dr. Pepper; gently heat until gelatin is dissolved. Add almond extract and cool slightly.

In a large mixing bowl, combine yellow cake mix, 1 box cherry gelatin, oil, eggs and 3/4 cup Dr. Pepper. Beat at high speed of an electric mixer for 3-4 minutes. Pour cooled gelatin mixture over cherries in pan.

Sprinkle evenly with the miniature marshmallows and then carefully and evenly spoon the batter mix over the marshmallows. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Cool on rack for 45 minutes. Chill for 3 to 4 hours. Yields 16 servings

Easy Banana Cake

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1 c. water
2 lg. ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp. baking soda

Blend ingredients, then add bananas. Pour into a well greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool.

My favorite frosting for this cake is cream cheese icing. But the last time I made this cake, I used pudding and Cool Whip instead.

I spread a layer of vanilla pudding (made according to package directions), then added a layer of bananas and topped that with Cool Whip. I finished it off by sprinkling nuts on the top.
