Day 21: Cardamom Crumb Cake

10-20-08 039 copy

I’m going to cheat a bit today and use my TWD post as Day 21’s treat.

I miss baking with TWD, although I haven’t really missed more than 2 assignments (I think) but life gets busy and sometimes you gotta kill two birds with one stone.

Metaphorically, of course. Killing birds isn’t up my alley. It makes me sad.

No birdies were harmed in the making of this crumb cake.

If you like cardamom, orange and coffee flavors, this crumb cake is for you! Whip it up for brunch or for breakfast or even for company that drops by. It comes together quickly and is best served warm the day it’s made with some coffee and a side of cinnamon infused freshly whipped cream.

Jill chose this cake and made the comment that this is a good holiday cake… and I agree. That’s why it is for Day 21 of my Christmas baking extravaganza!

I have never done anything with cardamom before but I went ahead and bought some cardamom and I can’t wait to find new ways to use it. I halved this recipe and made it in a 8×5 loaf pan, which is why it’s a bit on the thin side, but it still worked.

  1. Thanks for baking with me and including this cake in your holiday extravaganza! Your cake looks really fabulous, and I’m glad that you liked the cardamom flavor. I am making some cardamom cookies for Christmas, and will (hopefully) have the recipe on my blog next week.

    Happy holidays!

  2. Your cake looks fantastic! I want to make this one, but couldn’t fit it in this week. It’ll probably be the rewind for me next week….assuming I can swallow the high cost of the jar of cardamom I need to buy first.
