Cardamom is a spice that is used in many different cuisines across the globe. It can be found in Indian, Middle Eastern, and European cuisines. Its flavor is not just one-dimensional but has a strong aroma that can be detected even without tasting it.
Cardamom cake was created by accident when the baker wanted to use cardamom as an ingredient for their cake batter. It was not until they tasted the cake that they realized how flavorful it was and decided to name it after this spice.
This dessert is usually served at room temperature with a scoop of ice cream on top of it or with a dusting of powdered sugar on top of the cake.
- 2 1/2 cups (312g) AP flour
- 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups (300g) sugar
- 2 tsp cardamom
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup + 1 tbsp (250g) butter, melted
- 2 tsp vanilla
Oven 350F. Butter and flour two 8-inch cake pans.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until just combined.
Divide evenly between both pans. Bake 30-40 minutes until the center is set. Remove from pans and let cool on a wire rack. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
