How to Make Amaretto Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven 300 degrees. Grease and flour or use baking spray a 15 cup tube pan. This makes a BIG pound cake a 10 or 12 cup will not work batter will run over. In a medium bowl sift flour and soda together, set aside. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add two eggs at time beating well after each addition. Add almond extract and amaretto extract. Add half dry mixture to wet mixture alternately with half whipping cream, starting with flour and ending with cream. Repeat, beating well after each addition. Mixture should now be very light and fluffy resembling the texture of Cool Whip.
  2. Dip mixture with a ladle into tube pan. Place in middle of oven and bake for 1hr. and 30 mins. Mine always cooks perfectly for that lenght of time but do a test for doneness. Remove cake from oven and place on cooling rack. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely before icing.
  3. GLAZE

    In medium bowl mix all ingredients together until smooth. If you want more thicker glaze add more powdered sugar. This cake is best eaten the next day. ENJOY!
