    Hey Jude's Note:

    Another lovely cardamom recipe, this one is adapted from the fantastic 'The Great Scandinavian Baking Book' by Beatrice Ojakangas. You can buy cardamom already ground but I prefer grinding it myself in a mortar and pestle, it's much tastier.

      HeyJude speaks the truth: grind your own cardamom. I used some preground that was lingering in the cupboard, and everything about the cake was great...except that the flavour was flat. I was so mad at myself for taking the lazy route. Next time I'm going to do it properly! Thanks for sharing.

      Having a wee bit of Scandanavian in me, I saw this recipe and frothed. However, I knew if I made a bundt cake, they would ask which old lady in the neighborhood dropped it off and it wouldn't be eaten. So, I made the batter and made them into cupcakes. It made 14 cupcakes filled 3/4 full to the top. I baked them at 325 degrees conVECTION for 25 minutes. I piped a little vanilla icing flower on top of each one. That was three hours ago...they're all gone! ...I might want to double the amounts next time!!!! This was a phenominal recipe and I will make it in Bundt form to bring to get-togethers...but this worked GREAT as cupcakes too! Thank you for sharing this recipe Hey Jude! Kudos!

      When I saw this recipe I went nuts--its been years since I had a good cardamom coffeecake. Being swedish I was used to eating cardamom coffee cake regularly, from a swedish bakery. Its nice to know I can now make it myself and serve it to my family. It was absolutely delicious. My sister was over when I was making it and she and I devoured half of it. The texture was light and the only change we made was to sprinkle the top with a mixture of sugar, cardamom and cinnamon. (my personal preference). Thanks Hey Jude for a great receipe.
