    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 26cm tube cake tin.
    2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, instant dessert mix, water, oil, almond extract and 2 tablespoons of the amaretto; mix well. Pour batter into the prepared tin.
    3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of cake comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and while it is still warm, poke holes in the surface.
