Amaretto Cake

Angela Harris Recipe shared by:

This cake is by far the one most requested by my family and friends. It is a variation of the Yellow Pound Cake recipe. My mother-in-law requested I freeze the "hump" cake scraps for her to eat when she gets a craving! Even my kids love it.

Tips

Pouring-fondant

Pouring-fondant

Instead of using candy melts, try using pouring fondant.


Subsitute oil with applesauce

Subsitute oil with applesauce

If your trying to watch what you eat and are trying to cook and bake healthier substitute 1/2 or all your recipes oil portion for apple sauce I use the unsweetened applesauce. It taste great and it will keep your cakes moisty.
