1 10-inch fluted tube cake


  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix

  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix

  • 5 eggs

  • ½ cup amaretto liqueur

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup milk

  • 2 cups chopped cranberries

  • 1 cup flaked coconut

  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped (Optional)


  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup amaretto liqueur

  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®).

  2. Mix yellow cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, amaretto, oil, and milk together in a bowl. Beat using an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Fold in cranberries, coconut, and walnuts. Pour into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, combine sugar, amaretto, and butter for glaze in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; continue to boil until sugar is dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Remove cake from the oven and glaze immediately.
