This is definately a quick and easy cake to make! I used Frangelico instead of Disaronno, and for the "glaze" I poured about 1/4 cup frangelico on top of the cake, and then sprinkled a small amount of powdered sugar. It was very moist and delicious!

rita is right- easy and delicious. i made this for the break fast last night, and my guests enjoyed it very much. i used pistachios, ran out of amaretto so i used some "99 bananas" liquor. very good.
