Amaretto Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Amaretto Ice Cream Cake with Strawberry and Pistachio ice cream.

I loved how easy this Amaretto cake was to put together and it doesn't look bad either! It sure does taste wonderful! I bet you could use all sorts of different liqueurs and ice cream combos or even just add syrups and fruits. Very versatile cake recipe, can be used and decorated for any occasion.

1/2 cup Amaretto
1 pint Pistachio ice cream
1 pint Strawberry ice cream
1/2 pint Whipping cream or 2 cups Cool Whip

With a sharp serrated knife, using a sawing motion, cut the cake into 3 layers. Sprinkle each layer with 3 tablespoon of the Amaretto. Place one layer onto serving platter. Cut ice cream into slices, place pistachio ice cream onto bottom cake layer. Top with second cake layer and a layer of strawberry ice cream. Top with third cake layer. Place cake into freezer. In a bowl, mix heavy cream and remaining Amaretto, beat until very thick.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
