Amaretto Cake

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by KTs Mom

This is sooo easy and delicious!!! You won't believe how tasty it is. You can add as little or as much Amaretto as you like. You can't ruin this. I usually just crumble the cake when layering it in. Prep time does not include baking the cake. Enjoy!

If someone takes the time to post a recipe it deserves a try and a review. It looked interesting and it was quite good. I thought I was putting in too much amaretto and that it would be soggy but I recommend you make as posted and maybe another splash or two. The presentation was lovely in a glass trifle dish however it comes out a bit messy because a trifle dish is round and deep. Maybe it would be worth trying in an oblong dish and removing with a spatula to keep it's shape. Doesn't really matter though,it was still a hit.
