Simple & Delicious Cardamom Cake

You’ll need a springform pan for best results and parchment paper to line it or butter to grease it.

Prepping the Pan

3/4 cup sliced almonds

2-3 T granulated sugar

Place parchment paper in bottom of springform pan or butter the bottom. Sprinkle with the sugar evenly over the bottom of the pan, tipping/shaking as needed. Then spread the sliced almonds evenly over the sugar — Crispy Top Crust is the Pay-Off for this Effort

Ingredients & Instructions for the Cake

1 1/3 cups granulated sugar

4 eggs, room temperature

1 1/3 cups flour

1 1/2 T ground cardamom

1/8 tsp salt

1 1/3 sticks of butter melted

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • In a small bowl, mix the flour, cardamom, and salt together.
  • Beat the sugar and eggs for 5 minutes with an electric mixer until rich and fluffy.
  • Fold in the flour/cardamom/salt gently into the sugar and egg mixture.
  • Next, gently and thoroughly fold in the melted butter.
  • Pour the batter into the pan.
  • Bake for 35 – 40 minutes until the cake is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Because of the melted butter, the toothpick may be a little damp, but there should be no batter attached to it as you pull it from the cake.
  • Let the cake cool in the pan for a few minutes, then run a sharp knife around the inside of the pan, and remove the sides of the pan.
  • Flip the cake onto a wire rack and then remove the pan top and parchment paper.
  • Let the cake cool before cutting.
