    I've been gradually coming around to caraway seeds, and this recipe gives the option of using part mukhwas (candied fennel seeds) which sounded nice. Unfortunately the mukhwas I used was a mixture of white, yellow and green - the candied coating dissolved from all of them in the baking but only the green ones left any colour on the cake. I'd been hoping for flecks of colour like a confetti cake! It's not quite as rich as my usual loaf cake mix but it's a very good, old-fashioned plain cake.
