From Christina's Kitchen to Yours - Amaretto Cake -


Today my dear friend Christina Lum, shares with us her wonderful recipe for Amaretto cake. Can you just imagine that? Perfect for a nice dinner this summer, what do you think?

Thank you, my dear friend for your generosity!

Amaretto Cake

350º F (180ºC) 1 hour (ovens vary)
Christina’s oven 325 º for 45 minutes.

1 box cake mix (yellow or butter)
1 small instant vanilla pudding cake
4 eggs
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup water
½ cup Amaretto (Disaronno)
1 cup chopped almonds (slivered work too)

Combine ingredients well and pour in well greased and lightly floured bundt pan.

¼ cup butter
½ cup water
¾ cup sugar
4 Tablespoons Amaretto (I always put more)

When cake is finished baking, before removing from pan, poke holes in top and pour ½ of glaze in the holes with a spoon. Then turn over onto a cake platter to remove from pan and repeat process of poking holes and putting in the glaze.

Note: Keep in an airtight cake pan for a few days before serving. The glaze should make the cake very moist -- that’s what you want! Oh, it’s sooo good!


p.s. This cake is a welcoming birthday and Christmas gift. I usually give it in a glass cake pan and tie it with a beautiful ribbon!

And just so you know... Christina recently won the latest giveaway we had for our facebook friends of Doctrines in the Kitchen; she is now enjoying The Pioneer Woman Cookbook! Please, give her a handclap! :) (hey, be sure you "like" us on fb too!)

Thank you Christina, I am blessed to call you, my friend!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
