Amaretto Cake

This cake is simple to make and is always a crowd pleaser. I personally like it drenched in the glaze and adjust the glaze quantity to my liking.

Cake


1 package yellow cake mix

4 eggs

3 1/2 ou.) package of instant vanilla pudding

2 Tbs. amaretto liqueur

1/2 c. water

1/2 c. vegetable oil

1/2 tsp. almond extract

1/4-1/2 c. lightly toasted sliced almonds


Glaze

1/2 c. amaretto liqueur

1c. confectioner's sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degree. Grease and flour bundt pan. Put toasted almonds in the bottom of the pan. Mix all cake ingredients and pour into pan (I told you this was EASY). Bake for 40-45 minutes. Check to make sure done with a toothpick. Mix amaretto glaze. While cake is still warm, poke holes and pour glaze over cake. Let cake cool at least 2 hours before removing from pan.


Note: You can add more amaretto according to your taste.

Nancy - a great cake and a favorite ofours! -- Did you know that you can substitute Bailey's for the Amaretto and have an Irish cake? It's yummy, too. (And the more glaze the better!)

This is one of the most beautiful blogs I've seen. I absolutely love it!

I'm also a writer, and my husband is an artist. We live in a cottage in England. Mainly I write novels and he paints oils - landscapes for the most part - but I convinced him to draw a cartoon bus for my blog yesterday to take my followers on 'The Blog Tour'. Pop across and say 'hi' if you get the chance.
