I've not been this exhausted in quite a long time, but with the help of a very good friend and a couple of family members, we have finally arrived safely in VA. I don't have much time for a long post today, but I thought I could share a quick recipe, which can be found here. I've made this with and without the cardamom, and it's delicious either way. I've also used vanilla sugar in place of the sugar and omitted the vanilla (again, delicious). The cakes are dense, moist, and sweet (sweet enough that I'm tempted to scale back the sugar). The original recipe calls for the cake to be baked in a cast iron skillet, but I usually make mini bundts (mainly because I like to ask people if they'd like a mini bundt... come on, it's funny!) instead. It's a versatile recipe- have fun with it!
