Cardamom Tea Loaf

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Rita1652

This scented Finnish recipe is spiced with cardamom and cinnamon. Made rich from the eggs, butter and sour cream. This is more a bread then a sweet cake. Enjoy it for breakfast or dessert with a nice cup of coffee or tea.

Top Review by Annacia

I have to give this a 5 star review. My single change was to use Splenda in place of the sugar. This has enough sweetness for good taste without being "sweet". If you have a real sweet tooth this recipe isn't for you. What I loved about it is that it tastes rich (3 eggs, butter and sour cream will do that *wink*). It has a lovely moist interior without being too heavy and the spice is a simple but real pleasure. This will certainly be made again. :D
