Amaretto Bundt Cake (reposting because it is that GOOD!)

This Amaretto Bundt Cake made our entire family so H-A-P-P-Y!!! My sister-in-law made it a few weeks ago and so kindly shared the recipe. What really makes it is the Amaretto glaze.

Amaretto Bundt Cake

Cake batter:
1 package (18.25 ounce) yellow cake mix {I used one from Trader Joe's}
4 large eggs
1 (6 serving) package vanilla instant pudding
6 teaspoons amaretto
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 cup amaretto
2 cups powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Combine cake mix, eggs, pudding, water, oil, almond extract and 6 teaspoons amaretto;blend together well. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3. Bake for 40-50 min.

4, While cake is cooking prepare the Amaretto icing: Sift powdered sugar and remaining 1/2 cup Amaretto and blend until smooth with a hand mixer.

5. Remove cake and leave it in the pan, while it is still hot poke holes in the bottom and pour the amaretto icing over the bottom of cake. {I used a straw and put several holes around the cake and it soaked in perfectly.} Let cool for at least two hours before removing from pan.
