This Cardamom Coffee bundt marble Cake Recipe is long time in my bucket list. And now I am very happy to share this recipe.
Are you tired of making Vanilla and Chocolate Marble Cake? When I was going through Yotam Ottolenghi Book named Sweet, I came across this combination of cardamom and coffee. His book approaches some different flavor pairings.
I always pair Cardamom with Chai/ Tea. My all time favorite is ginger and cardamom tea. But this coffee and cardamom cake is told me a different story. It’s so rich and delicious.
How to make perfect Pound Cake?
Classic Pound Cakes are always rich in flavor, because it’s made with equal amount of butter, sugar, eggs and Flour. Bring all the ingredients, mainly Butter to room temperature. Don’t cheat by microwaving the butter. When its melted slightly, it doesn’t cream properly.
Most importantly, cream the butter and sugar till pale and fluffy. Add one egg at a time and mix just till the yolk disappears. Either fold in the flour using a spatula or beat it in low speed using blender. Do not over mix.
