DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 8 inch cake pan and line with either parchment paper or waxed paper.
  • In a large bowl add the flour, baking soda, salt and cardamom, set aside until needed.
  • Beat the butter until creamy and slowly add the sugar beating until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg.
  • Mix the sour cream with the lemon juice and lemon rind, blending well.
  • Fold the flour into the mixture in 3 batches alternating with the sour cream mixture.
  • Spoon into the cake pan making sure to smooth the surface and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes until firm to the touch.
  • After removing from oven, you may want to loosen the cake with a knife so that it doesn't stick when you turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • When cold you may cut into squares, dust with icing sugar and enjoy.
