How to make Almond Amaretto Pound Cake
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 325 degrees F.
Step 2: Using baking spray or butter, grease a 10-inch bundt pan. Flour and set aside.
Step 3: Whisk the milk and vinegar in a small bowl.
Step 4: Place the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well and set aside.
Step 5: Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy. A piece at a time beat in the eggs then stirs in the vanilla followed by the almond until incorporated. Alternately beat in the flour mixture with milk and amaretto.
Step 6: Into the prepared Bundt pan, pour the batter. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 55 to 65 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Step 7: Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely in the Bundt pan. Then, invert onto a cake plate.
Step 1: In a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar and heat over medium heat until smooth, stirring often. Add in the cream and amaretto and simmer for about 5 minutes still stirring often. Take away from heat and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
Step 2: Drizzle the warm cake with the amaretto sauce. Serve and enjoy!
