    This cake knocked my socks off. It was so delicious, moist and buttery. My cake took 45-50 minutes. As instructed, I tented it with foil after 30 minutes. I can't wait to have another slice in the morning.

    Guilty of not reading this recipe properly until I had already started... I didn't realise there was ground cardamom in it. I have noted plenty of recipes with this as an ingredient but never been brave enough. I still wasn't and opted for 1 teaspoon instead of 1.5. The length of time to cook (or the temp) is not right for this cake. At 150fan (recommended) it was still a batter at 30mins, and this was when I was supposed to be putting foil on to stop it burning... Anyway, after 50 minutes it was just about done. When eaten warm, I think the cardamom was overpowering. Cold - it's quite nice. I need to see if it grows on me. Very easy to do though when all chucked in the food processor, and a nice smaller cake in a 1pound tin. I did it gluten free.
