Maple And Cardamom Cake

By Radhika (Sugar& Spice)

Ingredients:

Cake:

  • 250 g Flour
  • 1 ½ tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder
  • ½ cup Softened Butter
  • 160 ml Maple syrup
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • ½ cup Milk

Frosting:

  • 150 g Unsalted butter
  • ¼ Maple syrup
  • ½ Vanilla extract

To Decorate:

  • Rose petals
  • Chopped pistachios
  • Maple syrup

 

Method:

  • In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder and cardamom powder.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the eggs one by one, followed by the maple syrup and vanilla extract. Mix everything until they’re properly combined.
  • Mix the ingredients in both the bowl together using a spatula.
  • Mix until you’ve used up all the dry ingredients and the milk. You should have a smooth mixture at the end.
  • Pour it in a non stick 8″ wide x 3″ deep cake tin. Bake at 170 degrees Celsius in a preheated oven for 25-30 mins. Check your cake after 25 mins, if its not done bake for additional 5 mins.
  • Let the cake cool for atleast 2 hrs.
  • For the frosting, whisk the butter until its light and fluffy. Add in the maple syrup in a steady stream while constantly whisking along with vanilla extract.
  • When you’re ready to frost, split the cake in half along the width, into 2 layers. Drop dollops of the maple frosting between the 2 layers and sandwich them together. Drop the remaining frosting on top of the cake and spread with an offset spatula to even it out.
  • Decorate with some chopped pistachios, rose petals and drizzle some maple syrup on top before serving.
