Over couple of years, I have made this Cardamom Cake or as the Swedes would call it, Kardemummakaka, quite a few times and every time it has been a super hit with my family. Now, my 1 year old has also been added to this list of its fan. And, THAT my friend, has to be the highlight of my life right now for being a food blogger. This tea time or coffee break cake, also known as fika in Sweden, is absolutely delicious with mildly fragrant with a handful of Green Cardamoms. Rest, everything is same with this oil-based sponge cake, that I will get to soon.
Grind the Cardamoms into a fine powder. Allow it to sit for a while before you open the jar, otherwise there will be a cloud of spice in your eyes.
Take a bowl and mix all the dry ingredients together, including the Cardamom powder. Sieve them through and keep them aside.
Add oil to the eggs and whisk them vigorously till light and airy.
Now, pour the batter in a slightly oiled and floured cake tin and bake it at 170c for 40 minutes. Once you see that the cake has baked and the sides are pulling back from the edges, you know that it is done.
Serve this cake as it is or drizzle it with a glaze.
