Yummmm!  This Cardamom Vanilla Pound cake from Epicurious (here) might just be the best cake I have ever made, and I have made  a lot of cakes!

I made it for some friends who came over for dinner Sunday night and almost everyone enjoyed two slices, including D. who does not like cake!  It was likened to an Indian doughnut…with a crisp outer and soft moist inner.  It was not too sweet and had just the slightest cardamom taste, not overpowering at all.  I used a dark non-stick coated bundt cake pan and reduced the baking time to 50 minutes and it was perfect.

Served it with fresh vanilla bean ice cream instead of the suggested whipped cream…divine!

Oh my…did we really eat half the cake???  Oh and as the recipe stated…it is even better the second day!

Happy baking,
