Original recipe yields 1 - 10 inch bundt cake

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, instant vanilla pudding, water, oil, almond extract, and 2 tablespoons of the amaretto; blend together well. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of cake comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and while it is still warm, poke holes in the surface. Drizzle with the Amaretto Glaze, insuring that some of the glaze fills the holes. Let the cake cool for at least 2 hours before removing from the pan.
  4. To make Amaretto Glaze: Sift the confectioners' sugar, and combine it with the remaining 1/2 cup amaretto. Blend until smooth. You may add more amaretto as needed.

I also made it and took it to a party. Everyone loved it. Suggestion: make another batch of glaze with 2 cups of confectioners and 1/2 cup of amaretto. After removing cooled cake from pan, drizzle this thicker glaze over the top. Top it off by sprinkling sliced almonds over the top.

I've probably baked this cake about a dozen times and it never fails to be a success!! I've learned though, that it is better to pour the glaze into the poked holes after the cake has almost cooled completely, rather than while it's still warm to prevent it from breaking apart when slicing. This is by-far the BEST cake that I've ever baked and I enjoy eating it everytime!! Thanks Shawn!

Great cake! I would suggest using less amaretto in the icing if you're serving it to folks who aren't drinkers - just barely glaze the cake instead. On the other hand, if they do drink, use it all! Thanks for the recipe!
