Amaretto Bundt(R) Cake with Bourbon Soak Recipe

Amaretto Bundt® Cake with Bourbon Soak


The longer this amaretto Bundt(R) cake sits, the better it tastes. The nutty taste of the amaretto and the rich smoky bourbon makes this a perfect fall dessert.


  • 2 ½ cups white sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 6 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups cake flour, sifted
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup amaretto liqueur
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup bourbon


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup tube pan (such as Bundt®).
  2. Beat sugar and butter together in a large bowl using an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla bean paste and almond extract and mix in.
  3. Whisk the sifted cake flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Add flour mixture to the bowl with the butter mixture in 3 additions, alternating with amaretto and sour cream.
  4. Sprinkle sliced almonds into the bottom of the prepared tube pan. Pour batter on top.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours. Cool cake in pan for 15 minutes; turn it out onto a wire rack to cool another 15 minutes.
  6. Use a toothpick or the tines of a fork to poke holes around the top of the cake and spoon bourbon over the cake. Cool another 15 minutes and transfer cake to a serving plate.
