Couldn't find an 18.25 oz yellow cake mix anywhere, so I used a Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme mix which was the correct weight. All of the yellow cake mixes now are somewhere in the range of 15.25 to 16.25 oz., the same old trick that so many manufacturers are using now...cutting back qty/volume. The batter was REALLY thick, and I'm a little surprised that it turned out as light and moist as it did. What you'll end up with is something that tastes like the cake mix, and the texture is like cake, not a bread. Recipe didn't say to do anything with the cherries, but I did slice them in half thinking I'd get better cherry distribution throughout the batter. I made one loaf and the rest into muffins (or cupcakes might be more accurate). This recipe is colorful, fun, easy, and definitely a conversation piece.
