  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.

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...

Excellent cake. I used 1/2 the amaretto in the glaze they brushed it on. Then I made a second glaze to drizzle on. 1 cup powdered sugar. 2 tbs. melted butter. a few drops of almond extract and a...

I made this cake before "as is" and it turned out wonderful. I didn't have any vanilla pudding mix, so I decided to use chocolate. Almond and chocolate are a great pair. If you liked the orig...

It's recipes like this that make me LOVE allrecipes.com. Note: the glaze makes this cake so good. Next time, I'm doubling the glaze and poking tons of holes in the cake to pour it into. It's ama...

Very Moist. I can still tell that it's a box cake though. I would add more almond extract next time to add more flavor.
