The secret here is a the cardamon and it definitely makes this recipe. This is one of my favorite quick breads to make.

I went to Sweden this year and fell in love with breads using cardamom. I used whole wheat flour and subbed out 1/2 of the sugar for Splenda. Cooked for full amt of time. Not sure that my glaze served any purpose, as the bread was nice and crunchy before it's addition. Tossed in a handful of chopped walnuts which worked well. Will definitely make this again and will add some orange peel to try to get a little more orange flavor.
