I have a question about the recipe "Cinnamon Almond Cake with Wild Texas Blackberries" from nannydeb. If I don't want to buy amaretto just for this recipe, can I substitute some almond extract? if so, how much?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Yes Kacia, you can use almond extract, but not more then about 3/4 of a teaspoon.

Another alternative is to buy the Amaretto in one of those mini "airline size" bottles. BevMo carries them as well as some liquor stores.
I think I would start with 1/2 teaspoon and taste the batter. If you buy Amaretto, you'll find lots of yummy things to do with it !
