Very easy to make. It's nice and moist as well. I went light on the amaretto in the glaze. It was pretty strong in the bowl but you could barely taste it on the cake so keep that in mind. I only let it cool an hour in the pan b/c I was impatient to taste it. I also made the glaze half at a time. I used half to pour over the cake in the pan. I had a bad experience with glazing a whole (different) cake while it was in the pan so I waited until after I took the cake out of the pan to put the rest of the glaze over it.
