DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Grease and lightly flour a 9x9 square cake pan. Shake out any excess flour.
  • Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder; set aside.
  • Sift sugar, set aside.
  • Crush cardamom seeds (use a mortar and pestle or a rolling pin).
  • If using pods, remove the white hull pieces.
  • Heat milk to lukewarm (in microwave, heat in a microwave safe cup or bowl at 70% power for about 45 seconds). Set milk aside.
  • Melt butter (in microwave, heat at 70% power for about 1 minutes, then stir until completely melted). Set melted butter aside.
  • Beat egg until fluffy.
  • Blend in sifted sugar.
  • Add crushed cardamom seeds.
  • Alternate adding lukewarm milk and the flour mixture, blending well.
  • Add melted butter and beat batter until well blended.
  • Pour batter into cake pan.
  • Mix together the allspice and sugar.
  • Sprinkle evenly on top of the cake in the pan.
  • Sprinkle chopped or sliced almonds on top, pressing them into the batter very lightly.
  • Bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Cool slightly before cutting.
  • Tip: this recipe doubles well, making 2 9x9 cakes. Freeze one, then warm it up for later use.
