Step-by-Step

    Make cake mix as directed on box, using water 1/2 cup butter and the eggs.

    Spread batter evenly in pan. Bake 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on cooling rack 30 minutes.

    Reduce heat to medium; simmer uncovered about 15 minutes,stirring frequently, until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool slightly
  3. Poke warm cake every inch with the handle of wooden spoon. Slowly pour condensed milk over cake. Let stand until milk has been absorbed into cake, about 5 minutes. Slowly drizzle with most of caramel sauce, pressing slightly into holes.

    Sprinkle with almonds. Drizzle with remaining caramel sauce. Cool completely.
