Cardamom Bundt Cake


2 cups flour
2 tbs ground cardamom
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream
confectioner's sugar (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 10" bundt pan.
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, salt, and cardamom in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Mix in sour cream. Add eggs one at a time, and stir in vanilla.
  4. Combine dry and wet ingredients, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl to mix evenly.
  5. Scrape batter into bundt pan and smooth the top with a utensil. Bake until golden brown and when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 - 45 minutes.

  7. Sprinkle confectioner's sugar atop cake to decorate.

Hey there, Internet!

So, I've recently purchased some online real estate (, which means I own a tiny sliver of the Web!

I haven't been updating this blog (obviously), but in the interim between my teaching position and grad school, I hope to (a) learn some basic webbing skills, and (b) create a nifty food-science-education-adventure blog!

Until that day arrives, will point here.

Consider yourself informed!
