Cardamom Cake

What to do when 30 hungry chemistry students expect cake? Make Cardamom Cake (obviously!)

This is a very easy cake to prepare, especially if you own a food processor.

6 dl flour

2½ tsp. baking powder

2 dl sugar

1 tbsp. ground cardamom

100 g butter

2½ dl milk


2 tbsp. coarse sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. ground cardamom


Mix flour, sugar, bakingpowder and cardamom in the bowl of a food processor. Add the butter in cubes, and proces until the butter is evenly mixed into the flour. Add the milk through the funnel, and proces until a batter forms.

Pour the batter into a buttered/lined tin (I used a round tin, 20 cm in diameter). Mix the ingredients for the topping, and sprinkle over the top of the cake.

Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 30-35 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.


If you don’t have a food processor, don’t worry! Just use your hands to mix the butter with the dry ingredients, and add the milk.


The cake is delicious warm, but very nice the next day as well. (there was no cake left for me to take home afterwards)
