1  pk  (3 1/2 oz.) instant vanilla
3/4  c  Oil
3/4  c  Sherry
3/4  tb  Almond extract
1  c  Chopped nuts

I usually use a yellow cake mix, and pecans or walnuts, but it ought to be good with almonds too. The recipe I adapted it from used 2 Tbl. of poppyseeds instead of the nuts. Cake: Beat all ingredients together for 3 min. Pour into a greased bundt pan or inch tube pan and bake at 350 F. for 45 minutes. Allow to rest for 10-15 min., then turn out of pan and cool. Icing: Combine ingredients in a double boiler, and stir over hot water for 10-15 minutes. Thin with water or thicken with confectioner's sugar as needed. Drizzle icing over the cake, and sprinkle with sliced almonds before it hardens. Alternate icing: Heat 6-8 Tbl. confectioner's sugar with enough sherry to make a glaze. Emily Epstein
