So, I am giving you a fabulous dessert with no chocolate and sadly, with no picture. Last time I made it was pre-blogging (meaning I did not think there was any reason to take pictures of my food) and I am not making it again until Thanksgiving, because I WILL eat it...all. This cake is included in my Thanksgiving menu. I'm linking it up to Tried and True Thanksgiving Recipes Week at my friend Kim's cooking blog!
**Updated - finally made the cake and took a pic! Here it is...Amaretto Cake
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (I use walnuts)
1 package yellow cake mix with pudding in the mix
1/2 cup cold water
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup Amaretto liqueur (You can buy the cheap stuff and can use almond liqueur)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour 10 in. tube or 12-cup Bundt pan (I use the Bundt pan). Sprinkle nuts over bottom of pan. Mix all cake ingredients together. Pour batter over nuts. Bake 1 hour. Cool. Invert on serving plate. Prick top and sides. Spoon and brush glaze evenly over top and sides. Allow cake to absorb glaze. Repeat until glaze is used up.
1 stick butter
1/4 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Amaretto liqueur
Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in water and sugar. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in Amaretto.
Optional - Decorate with border of sugar frosting or whipped cream.
Note - If you can't find cake mix with pudding already in the mix, use regular cake mix with 4 eggs instead of 3 and 1/2 cup oil instead of 1/3.
Note to self: Wipe drool off keyboard before continuing...
