Almond Amaretto Pound Cake

Products Used

Ingredients

    *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a 10-inch bundt pan with baking spray or butter and flour it. Set aside.
    2. In small bowl, whisk together milk and vinegar. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
    3. In large bowl of stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla and almond until well combined. Beat in flour mixture alternating with milk and amaretto.
    4. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes, until center is set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely (in bundt pan) before inverting onto cake plate.
    5. Amaretto Sauce: Combine the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring often, until smooth. Add the cream and amaretto and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
    6. Serve pound cake warm drizzled with amaretto sauce.

    Do you have to use a bundt pan for this cake or are there other options you can use? Thanks this looks delish.

    I do not have white vinegar. What can I substitute? I have distilled white vinegar, apple cider vinegar and white wine vinegar.

    Hey! Recipe looks yum! Is it possible to make a few mini cakes? Or a loaf pan? Just wondering if it will change the baking time. Thanks!
