Hiya my friends!!

Finally back after a month long hiatus. It feels great to be back and do what I love the most; create flavourful content for you guys.

Cherry Cardamom Crumble Cake recipe

Let’s begin on a sweeter note. Baked this delicious crumble cake, this cardamom scented cherry cardamom crumble cake last week and we loved every bit of it.

It is made up of 3 glorious layered cake baked together in one go.

1. The base layer is a moist, light and fluffy vanilla flavoured cake.

2. The middle layer consist of fresh, juicy cherry /cherries and

3. The top layer is a crunchy and buttery crumble topping with a hint of my favourite spice cardamom.

Adding cardamom to the crumble topping?

The addition of cardamom to the crunchy buttery crumble topping takes this cherry cake to the next level. It is not over powering at all. The whole kitchen and hallway got filled with the beautiful aroma while it was baking.

Substitute for Cardamom powder

If you are not a fan of cardamom, simple replace it with cinnamon powder or vanilla instead. It will turn out equally delicious.

Adding Sour cream to the batter..

Another amazing ingredient that I have added to this cherry cake is sour cream. It adds a lovely richness, moisture and flavour without thinning the batter, which is what we need to hold the topping of fresh cherries and crumble.

Let’s take a look the ingredients.

Ingredients you will need:

  • All purpose flour/Maida
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • Butter
  • Golden caster sugar/ light brown sugar
  • Free range large Eggs
  • Sour cream
  • Cardamom powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cherry
