This is a good everyday cake filled with sultanas and flavoured with lemon and cardamom. You'll want to make it more often than only once a year at Christmas!
Used different ingredients. Wonderful cake! I was just in Iceland and had a cake very similar. Thanks for sharing! One tip: don't worry about trying to track down cardamom extract - just use 1/2 tsp cardamom instead. - 18 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. I could not find cardamom flavouring and so used 1 tsp. cardamom instead. I have made this three times. Once according to the original recipe, once with an extra egg yolk, and once with candied orange peel instead of sultanas. All turned out really well. - 18 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. it's great! I love it! But I added apricot and walnuts and doubled the amount of sultanas, I wanted it to be rich. - 18 Jul 2008
