  1. To make an almond bundt cake from our gluten-free yellow cake mix, add 1/2 teaspoon almond extract to the butter and oil, and 1 cup almond flour to the mix.
  2. Bake in a 12-cup bundt cake pan at 325°F for 50 to 60 minutes until the internal temperature is 212°F.
  3. For The Glaze: combine 1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 4 to 6 tablespoons milk or cream.
  4. Whisk together using the smallest amount of liquid, and add milk or cream until you get a glaze the texture of molasses.
  5. Drizzle over cooled cake and sprinkle with sliced or slivered almonds if desired.

If you don't have almond flour, grind 2/3 cups of blanched almonds with half the mix in your blender or food processor until powdery, then combine with the rest of the cake mix.
