Tea Bread Tuesday: Amaretto Cake

Who would have thought that there were so many variations for David's Cake?

From Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) - Add a little Kahlua

From Pat (The View Through My Lens) - Use Lemon Cake Mix and Lemon Instant Pudding

From Co-worker Diana - Add a cup of miniature chocolate chips and ¾ C. Bailey's Irish Cream

From Friend Sue - Use yellow cake mix and Pistachio Instant Pudding

And here's one more variation - Amaretto Cake:


Cake:

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
¾ C. Amaretto di Saronno
½ C. water
¼ teaspoon almond extract
4 eggs
1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 C. sour cream

Glaze:

6 tablespoons Amaretto di Saronno
1 C. powdered sugar

Pre-heat oven to 325°F.  Grease and flour a bundt pan, or spray with PAM for Baking.  Combine cake ingredients and mix well until the lumps are gone.  Pour mixture into bundt pan and bake 40-45 minutes until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let cool in bundt pan for about 10 minutes.  Invert on serving plate and allow to cool completely.  Prepare glaze and pour over cake.

This cake is going to have you singing "O Sole Mio."

Lucky for me, I just down 1 or 2 bon-bons from the forbidden box of chocolates I got for Valentine's Day - otherwise I'd be ransacking the cabinet to make a cake. This looks moist and delicious.
