I entered this bundt cake of mine this past weekend into a baking contest at our local gourmet food store. It took home 2nd place--plus the bakery is going to start making it along side of their other "gourmet" cakes!! I am so excited--thought I would share it with everyone!

wowee! SO good! I had a mini bundt cake pan my mom gave me and I really wanted to try it out. What a wonderful recipe. Came out perfect and delicious! I used amaretto instead of almond extract. I used 4 TBS. Next time, I will use 6-8 TBS as the flavor was a bit weak. Thank you for this excellent recipe!

I made this and it was easy to make. I kept it in my refrigerator and served it to my guests. They raved about it, the almond taste is perfect, not overpowering. I love the chopped almonds on top. Great recipe, I want to find a way to adopt it for holidays.
