This was delicious! Next time, I'm going to skip the chips and add some poppy seeds into the batter, to make it like my favorite muffin!

    Wicked Good!

    Nancy Sauter from ,

    This is a great recipe! Moist and flavorful. I used vanilla extract and next time I will use almond because I think it could have used a little more flavor. As with everything, I have difficulty keeping the choc.chips floating in the cake. They all sank to the sides and bottom. I'd like to know how to fix that. Other than that it is a great recipe and I will make it again and again even though it is not incredibly healthy...it's good!

    Best-Ever Had Nestlé Chip Almond Cake

    Carolyn Powell from Columbia, TN

    This IS very good! - but very high in fat, calories, and sugar; a small piece is all one needs, but it's very tempting to eat more. Very good almond taste, which my family loves. A delicious recipe to make for special occasions and not an 'everyday treat'. I don't know why it is rated as 'challenging' though. It is very easy to make, and the directions are very clear and easy to follow.

    One word-DELICIOUS

    Valerie K Sakelakos from JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL

    I had read this recipe before and copied it, set it aside and today when I needed a "special cake" I thought of this one. It IS in a word-DELICIOUS. That says it all, easy to make as well. Thank you for giving us such a great site to share with each other.

    What a Cake***

    Carol Ninnemann from WAUSAU, WI

    This cake should have a warning label on it. TOO GOOD, MOIST, RICH, LOVED BY ALL! Will make again! I did have a problem with it spilling over my 12 cup bundt pan, next time I will make a few cupcakes so I don't have the over spill.

    Best-Ever Had Nestle Chip Almond Cake

    Sharon Barber from LAS ANIMAS, CO

    I baked this bundt cake recipe this afternoon for our Bible study group. Everyone really enjoyed it. I didn't follow the recipe exactly as I got distracted by a telephone call and didn't add the sour cream alternately with the flour and it still turned out well. When I discovered my error, I just put it in and baked it for the time recommended checking it periodically for doneness. We live at 4,000 ft. in elevation so I added about 2 T more flour. I also glazed it when it was warm...as I was running out of time and that worked well. My pan is a 12 cup pan and the recipe rises to use every centimeter of it. When I bake it the next time, I'll leave out a few of the chocolate chips as it over shadowed the almond some. Chocolate is always good. Also, I'll try to find Amaretto to add to the glaze instead of milk for more almond flavor.

    Good, but not Best Ever in my family

    K. O'Rama from Satellite Beach, FL

    I made the cake for a Father's Day dinner and everyone enjoyed it that day. Everyone liked the almond flavor but some thought the chocolate morsels were a little bitter tasting and it wasn't one of those cakes that was eaten down to the last piece. Instead of Amaretto in the glaze, I substituted orange juice and orange zest since children were eating the cake and that turned out to be a nice combination. I personally wouldn't make this recipe again.

    Yummy Almond Cake

    Ashlee Logan from HILLSVILLE, VA

    Doesn't taste a thing like almonds, but it is very good! Extremely sweet, so a small piece for a serving makes it last that much longer.

    Delicious and Moist!

    K Krawiec from Lawrenceville, NJ

    This cake is very delicious, moist and easy to make. I substituted lowfat sour cream, egg whites and cut the sugar to 2 cups. For the glaze, I used the milk but added a few melted chocolate chips. I brought this cake to work and it was gone in a flash!

  •  Star(s)

    Very Good!

    Janet Oese from HAZLET, NJ

    I substituted mini chocolate chips for the regular size chocolate chips. I thought this cake was a bit more work than I liked and it could have been moister. Everyone did love it and it went fast. I am just critical of my own baking.

    LESLIE GOSIK from SPARKS, NV

    Thank You, This is a MOST delicious, moist cake ever. I would give this recipe a 10. I sifted the full box of powdered sugar, used 1/2 milk & 1/2 Amaretto. There was lots of glaze. Drizzled extra on slices on each plate. I will make this again & again,etc. For those bakers who want something different, THIS IS IT!

    This was good but i didn't use the chocolate, I gave up on chocolate this year but next year i'm back with chocolate.This was good and turned out yummy, but it taste like cherrys to me, i guess it was the almond in it.Next time i make it, I'm putting a few cherrys on it.

    Worth Trying!

    Linda Hughes from PHOENIX, AZ

    The cake was not difficult to prepare other than the time and steps required. The cake had a good taste, but wasn't as moist as I had expected. I will try again and use milk for the glaze instead of Amaretto.

    This was REALLY good!

    SHAUNA BROOKS from PARKVILLE, MD

    Ever been tired of the same ole' same ole' cake(s)? Well this one is a great change! I'm tired of either making a chocolate cake or vanilla or butter, etc. etc. so I gave this one a try. It didn't even last the weekend! Everybody loved it! The almond taste isn't overly strong and it baked up nice and high! I even had it for breakfast one morning with coffee and it was even better! Definitely keeping this one!

    June Nirschl from BAILEYS HARBOR, WI

    Six eggs is a lot, but the cake is worth every one. The cake is moist and flavorful, especially if you like almond flavor. I reduced the sugar by a quarter cup, but I could probably have used even less. The cake does go a looooong way.

    SHERYL ALLEN from TRENTON, IL

    Great cake,very tasty and moist but needs bigger pan. I use pan called for , but it baked right up and out of the pan and all over the oven. The cake left in pan was great so I'll make it again just with a bigger pan.

    A Near Mishap but Good!

    Cheryl Poupard from VENTURA, CA

    I always thought there was a standard size bundt pan but found out differently with this recipe. While in the oven, it started overflowing onto the bottom of my oven. I was able to salvage the cake by placing a cookie sheet underneath. Will know better next time!

    A Nice Change

    Kristie O'Keefe from LAMBERTVILLE, NJ

    This was a yummy cake, a nice change from the usual chocolate desserts that I make. Be careful not to overbake; I baked it for less than the listed amount of time and it was a bit too long - the outside got hard. A few seconds in the microwave helps. Worth making again - would be a nice dessert at a brunch or similar event.

    Wonderful with white chips and some Bailey's Irish

    Pat Casali from BELMONT, MA

    What a hit this dessert made at my last dinner party. I used white chips and added Bailey' in the batter and then brushed some on top of the cake while it was still warm. Then a light glaze of confectioner's suger with enough Bailey's to make a light glaze. After the cake was cool, I spooned it over the cake...very delicious.
