Description

The longer this amaretto Bundt® cake sits, the better it tastes. The nutty taste of the amaretto and the rich smoky bourbon makes this a perfect fall dessert. Also, keep in mind that this cake contains alcohol and is for adults only. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Ingredients
  • 2 ½ cups white sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 6 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups cake flour, sifted
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup amaretto liqueur
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup bourbon
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup tube pan (such as Bundt®).
  2. 2. Beat sugar and butter together in a large bowl using an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla bean paste and almond extract and mix in.
  3. 3. Whisk the sifted cake flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Add flour mixture to the bowl with the butter mixture in 3 additions, alternating with amaretto and sour cream.
  4. 4. Sprinkle sliced almonds into the bottom of the prepared tube pan. Pour batter on top.
  5. 5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours. Cool cake in pan for 15 minutes; turn it out onto a wire rack to cool another 15 minutes.
  6. 6. Use a toothpick or the tines of a fork to poke holes around the top of the cake and spoon bourbon over the cake. Cool another 15 minutes and transfer cake to a serving plate.
