Cardamom spiced cake recipe -from passionate about baking

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)
