    Combine the cake mix and pudding mix in a medium mixing bowl. Add the reserved pineapple juice and milk. The combination of the two should equal one cup. Measure the pineapple juice first, then add enough milk to make 1 1/4 cup. Add the eggs and vegetable oil, and mix until fully blended. Pour the batter evenly over the pineapple and cherries.

    Bake for about 45 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool the cake for about 10 minutes before running a knife around the edges of the pan. Invert onto a serving plate and slice.
