Cardamom spiced cake recipe -from passionate about baking

cardamom spiced cake This was one perfect tea cake and I fell in love with it the first time I saw in Deeba's blog .I love the spices/ingredients of this cake. And the way it was made was a little different too. She has lovely droolworthy pictures at her place and has even tried frosting and filling with chococlate ganache. The flavours in the cake are so good and does make your tea time so wondeful. Do try it out. You will enjoy it just like I did.
The cake can be also stored for 2 to 3 days and can be carried with for picnics. So I am sending this one for LG's event meals on wheels. (see sidebar for details)

Ingredients
Self-raising flour -1cup
Wheat flour- 1 cup
Brown sugar, packed -1 1/4 cup
Cinnamon- 1tsp
Freshly grated nutmeg- 1/2ts
Ground cardamom -1/2tsp
Ground cloves -1/4
Cold butter chopped- 125g
Egg-1
Bicarbonate of soda-1tsp
Milk-3/4 cup
Almonds chopped-1/2 cup

Method
Preheat oven to 180C/moderate oven. Grease a cake/baking dish with non stick spray.
Process the flours, sugar,spices & butter till the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Transfer to a bowl. Firmly press 1 1/2 cups of the flour mix into the bottom of the pan.
Use a fork to combine the egg, soda & milk in another bowl and add to the remaining flour mixture with almonds, mix well with a wooden spoon. Pour mixture over base in pan, & spread evenly.
Bake cake for about 45 minutes. When done, cool on rack for about 10 minutes. then turn out of pan gently. Cut when cool.cardamom spiced cake
