Ingredient Notes

There are two types of cardamom, black and green. I used green cardamom powder for this recipe. If you’re not familiar with cardamom, the flavor can be overpowering. A little bit of cardamom goes a long way. If you can’t find cardamom, use ½ teaspoon of nutmeg and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon.Olive oil: when it comes lớn baking, choose a unique fruity olive oil. Arbequina olives are small & distinctly sweet, producing buttery, fruity, và smooth olive oil, most suited for sweet baking. Cakes made with olive oil tend khổng lồ bake up with a moist & tender texture compared to ones made with butter.
