Dark Chocolate Amaretto Cake

This tasty tidbit was Chris King’s popular potluck dish at yesterday’s Seattle Night Out.   Here is the much requested recipe:

  • 1 (18.25 oz) package of devil’s food cake mix with pudding
  • 1 (5.9 oz) package chocolate fudge instant pudding mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup vegtable oil
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate morsels, divided
  • 1/2 cup amaretto-flavored liquid non-dairy creamer
  • 3 tablespoons sliced natural almonds, toasted

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.   Stir in 2 cups chocolate morsels.  Pour batter into a greased and floured 12-cup Bundt pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; remove from pan, and cool completely on wire rack.

Combine remaining 1 cup chocolate morsels and amaretto-flavored creamer in a small saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stiring constantly, until morsels melt.  Remove from heat; let stand 15 minutes.  Drizzle chocolate glaze over cake; sprinkle with almonds.

According to Chris, this is a very easy recipe to make…I can tell you that it received rave reviews from all the neighbors!
