Amaretto-Almond Pound Cake

My choice this month for the Cake Slice was Amaretto-Almond Pound Cake. The other choices were Banana split cake, Luscious Lemon cake, and a Cinderella Cheesecake. It was a tough choice this month trying to decide which recipe to choose. In the end I baked the one I had ingredients for. 

Nut cakes are always a hit with the hubby. I don't think he could ever get quite enough of them. He's always hoping my Cake Slice choices consists of nuts. And constantly reminds me to double, even triple the nuts in the recipe. Not going to happen. 

The cake baked nicely. And the glaze gave it the final finish it needed. I suggest saving a tad bit of it to brush on top of the cake after its inverted. This would give it a better presentation. 

We had 1/2 the cake while still warm, then finished it off the next day. I preferred it the next day. The texture was dense and the flavors were perfectly balanced.
