      Personally, I would have liked a litle more zip to the cake, but my bookclub loved it. I would have added another tsp. of cinnamon. Two things I was unsure of. Do I beat by hand or an electric mixer? Since I used an electric mixer, I think the cake rose more than it should have since coffee cake is usually pretty dense. Are the nut mixture measurements correct? I got a pastey mixture instead of crumbly. Overall, the cardamom was the best part. Will use again.
