  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.

  • Sift flour, baking powder, salt, cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon into a bowl and set aside until needed.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar using an electric mixer on medium speed until it becomes light and fluffy, (3 - 4 min).
  • Lower mixer speed to low and add the eggs one at a time and blend for 1 minute each. Now add the grated zest, lemon juice and buttermilk, mixing well.
  • Lastly, you will add the flour mixture and blend until just combined. ( do not overmix).
  • Spoon the batter into the pan and smooth out the surface and bake in the center of the oven for 30 - 40 minutes (until a toothpick comes out almost clean, with a few moist crumbs attached).
  • Cool the cake in its pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes while you make the glaze.
  • For the glaze stir together all the ingredients until well blended. ( Make the glaze to your preference).
  • Remove cake from pan and spread the glaze on top and enjoy.
  • Make the glaze to your preference, either thick or thin.

    Made for the Scandinavian region of CQ4 & the Happy Camper Team. While I made the cake exactly as written, I changed the presentation by using Stacy's (Mrs Goodall) Scandinavian Berry Syrup rather than the glaze suggested by the recipe. Like another reviewer, I also had to bake the cake 50 min for it to test done. The flavor & texture are lovely, we enjoyed this very much & next time I want to try it w/the glaze. Thx for sharing this recipe w/the Quest.

    You can tell Jac that everyone loves her cake. Aside from using Splenda to replace the sugar in the cake and glaze this was made as directed and came out perfectly. I made a cup of Corta's Mediterranean coffee and enjoyed a slice of your lovely cake with it this afternoon. The texture is very good and whats not to love about about lemon, cardamom and cinnamon?? Pure bliss in a loaf pan :D.

    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!
