About this recipe: This easy cake is packed full of flavour and is guaranteed to please. An amaretto-infused sponge cake is drizzled with an amaretto glaze. Enjoy for afternoon tea or as a dessert.
I also made it and took it to a party. Everyone loved it. Suggestion: make another batch of glaze with 2 cups of confectioners and 1/2 cup of amaretto. After removing cooled cake from pan, drizzle this thicker glaze over the top. Top it off by sprinkling sliced almonds over the top. - 05 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've probably baked this cake about a dozen times and it never fails to be a success!! I've learned though, that it is better to pour the glaze into the poked holes after the cake has almost cooled completely, rather than while it's still warm to prevent it from breaking apart when slicing. This is by-far the BEST cake that I've ever baked and I enjoy eating it everytime!! Thanks Shawn! - 02 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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 all! Thanks for the recipe! - 05 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
