Catch-up TWD: Amaretto-drenched Vanilla Cake

Even though I've been back from my road trip for barely five days, I'm still trying to get caught up on work, baking, cooking, house-stuff, meetings, etc.

I missed one meeting today because I had to take the dog to the vet, unexpectedly. They kept her all day and performed some simple surgery on one leg. Poor thing. She is totally out of it tonight; I still have to administer 2.5 pills of medication to her before I go to bed.

She'll go back to the vet on Wednesday for a post-op follow-up. Let's see, how many other deadlines do I have on Wednesday?

Before I left on my travels, I did bake the Rum-drenched/Amaretto-drenched vanilla cake. I just ran out of time to write up the post. The first time I made this cake (can't remember when exactly), I used the rum. This time I decided to try some amaretto. Either way, it was delicious.

So delicious, in fact, that nary a slice was photographed. Just the cake.

Wendy, of Pink Stripes, was the hostess for the cake event. You can stop by her blog or the Tuesdays with Dorie blog to read about everyone's opinion and get the recipe for yourself.

I have a bit more catch-up baking to do, and some travel writing to post. Maybe by next Monday I'll be back on track.

Amaretto is my favourite, and I was really tempted to use it here, but I went with the rum instead. Next time for sure.

Great minds think alike - I purchased some Amaretto specifically for this cake! Love, love, love the flavor.

Hope your dog is better soon.

Looks delicious! Good thing you got caught up on this one...amaretto sounds really good, I will need to try that one, too. Thanks.
