      This cake is great with the icing or without it. It's so good with the cardamom and lemon taste. In the cake I used 1/2 cup of sugar. I used 1 1/2 tsp cardamom, no nutmeg. Thanks Baby Kato :) Made for the Best of 2011 tag game

      Great flavor and texture! Love cardamom and it went well with the lemon. I skipped the glaze and served with a dollop of whipped cream. Thanks for another winner, BK!

      I was excited to try this, since the cardamom made is sound so intriguing, and I was not disappointed! The flavor was wonderful and different from any other lemon cake I have had. I made this exactly as posted (but did not use freshly ground spices), adding 1-1/2 t. of cardamom. I baked this in a glass 9x5-inch loaf pan for 50 minutes (maybe it takes longer in glass); however, a tad stuck to the bottom of the pan even though I had sprayed it well with cooking spray. The batter appeared very wet, but the cake came out extremely moist and not too sweet. I made the glaze with the measurements instructed and it produced a thin glaze that added the perfect sweetness (most of it ran off onto the bottom of the plate). I will definitely be making this wonderful cake again. Thanks for sharing. Made for May 2012 Aussie/NZ Swap.
