I really enjoyed this splendid cake Boomie. The thin batter created a large, tender, flavorful cake with a beautiful crumb. Thank you so much for sharing this treat, into my keeperbox this goes. The spices were spot on, we loved the addition of the cardamom, it brought a lovely depth to the cake. I served it with a light dusting of icing sugar. It was enjoyed by all.
