Cardamom cake

  • 50 gr Butter (Unsalted)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Cardamom Seeds
  • 1 dl Honey
  • 1 dl Milk
  • 1 dl Sugar (slightly less perhaps)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 dl Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons of Baking powder
  • Oven at 175 Degrees Celsius, 35-45 minutes, in the bottom

So then, to the actual stuff. Start by grinding/crushing the cardamom kernels finely. Try to avoid pre-ground cardamom, just isn't the same, but if you do use it, take about 1.5 Tablespoons.

Melt the butter in a pot, add the milk and the ground down cardamom kernels, as well as the honey, let it just start to boil (not too hot). While you're waiting for it to boil (it never does while you're watching it, just give up) ,

Beat the eggs and sugar together with a mixer, keep it going until it's about two-three times the volume of the original, then add the hot milk/butter/honey/cardamom mix, and after that, add the flour and the baking powder, mix thoroughly.

Pour into a cake pan (butter&floured, of course) and into the bottom of the oven for 35-45 minutes, 175 degrees celsius.
