The smell when this was baking was just heavenly, the cardamon flavour filled the house, it's such a wonderful aroma and flavour. I made this with white spelt flour and rye flour, half of each, other than that I followed the recipe. I did bake it for about 15 minutes more, but that could of been my flour that caused that. As you can see from my picture I am not to good at the braiding but the taste was wonderful with even more butter spread thick. Thank you for posting. Made for zwt#6 2010.
