1 pkg. yellow cake mix (without pudding in the mix)
1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding mix
1/2 cup Amaretto (almond liqueur)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Finely chopped almonds
4 Tblsp. butter or margarine
1/4 cup Amaretto
1/2 cup brown sugar
Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with the finely chopped almonds. Stir together the dry cake mix and pudding mix, then beat in the eggs, oil, and amaretto, stirring just until batter is smooth.
Pour over the nuts in pan and bake in a 300 degree F. oven to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cake tests done. (It is normal for cake to crack on top).
Remove from oven and let stand in pan while quickly preparing topping. To make topping, place the butter, amaretto, and brown sugar in a small heavy saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat. Poke holes in the cake with a skewer or ice pick and spoon the warm glaze over the hot cake. Keep spooning on glaze and poking additional holes until all the glaze is absorbed.
Let cake cool in the pan, then invert onto cake plate. Let sit overnight before serving. Yield: 12-15 servings.
