Luby Luby Luby's Note:
A friend of mine wrote this recipe down on a small scrap of paper. She swears it is TO DIE FOR!!. I haven't made it yet so I wanted to post it here for safekeeping and will add it to my ever growing list of "to try" recipes. If you try it before I do please let me know what you think. 6/4/07 Edited: I made this cake and wanted to add helpful comments. The recipe as is makes more batter than you will need for a bundt pan. I would fill the bundt pan half way & then use the rest for cupcakes. Also, after cooking for 56 minutes the edges started to burn so I took it out. I think the problem was too much batter & it rose too high out of the pan. When I tested it with a toothpick it didn't come out completely clean, but it was done on the inside. Also, I would crumble the almond paste and beat it with the liquids and then add the cake mix & pudding. You will get a more evenly mixed batter. I also have to question the necessity of 2 cans of almond paste. I'm going to try it again with just one & compare. Anywho, I just wanted to give a few pointers from my experience. Additionally, DH really liked it a lot so I guess it will be a "regular" from now on.
