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.

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 pound confectioner's sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons amaretto liquor or water

Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray 2- 8-inch round pans with baking spray.
  2. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water, almond extract, amaretto and oil in large mixing bowl.
  3. Start on low speed for 20 seconds, then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.
  4. Pour evenly into pans. Bake at 350 F for 35-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool in pans 10 minutes, then turn out onto cooling rack. Let cool completely before icing.
  6. Buttercream directions:
  7. Beat butter on med-hi with electric mixer until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  8. Add almond extract and slowly add confectioner's sugar, mixing in between each addition.
  9. Add amaretto or water one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
  10. Variations: May also top with some toasted almond slices. Spread a layer of seedless raspberry preserves in between the layers instead of the buttercream for a fruity surprise.

Tips

Measuring Ingredients

Measuring Ingredients

Dry ingredients and liquids should be measured accurately to ensure perfect cookies. For dry ingredients, always use a dry measuring cup. Spoon the ingredients into the measuring cup and ‘cut it' or level off with the straight edge of a knife. Liquids should be measured by holding the cup at eye level.

Use good aluminum cookie sheets. Make sure they are cool when you apply cookie dough. Cookie dough should be cold in refriderator to help it from spreading. Always check 1-2 mins before allowed time in recipe. Aluminum cook faster and better.
