Heat oil in deep-fat fryer or heavy 6-quart saucepan to 350°. Combine pancake mix and water in medium bowl.
Thread pineapple on wooden skewer; dip pineapple chunks into pancake batter, turning to coat completely. Fry skewers in batches 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove from oil, let cool.
Mix together cherry juice and corn starch in small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking continuously until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Sprinkled fried pineapple with powdered sugar and drizzle with cherry sauce. Garnish with maraschino cherries, if desired.
