It was just okay. I wouldn't make it again. If you try it reduce the baking time by 5 - 10 minutes. After baking for one hour it was overdone. Read More

While I wouldn't call this a chocolate amaretto cake it was truly a great chocolate almond cake. I thought 2T of almond flavoring might be a bit overpowering so I used only 2t. I baked it in a tube pan for 50 minutes and it was done to perfection. This recipe is simple tasty very moist and best of all verryyyy chocolatey. My family loved it. Thanks Judy. Read More

Well it is not a pound cake. It is not Amaretto - it is almond and it smells more almond than it tastes. Do watch for doneness as it says to cook about 10 minutes more than necessary i think. Might try using real Amaretto in place of the water - bet THAT would be yummy. Pretty much an ordinary cake Read More
