Cardamon is one of those intensely aromatic and flavorful spices. The moment I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it soon! Considering it has orange as well meant there was no doubt about it that I would make it. Here is my adapted version.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup Amaranth flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 cup greek yogurt
1 tsp cardamon
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
1-2 tbsp orange zest
1-2 tbsp orange juice
Mix flour, baking powder, salt and cardamon in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix sugar and orange zest with your hands. Add oil, eggs, yogurt and orange juice and whisk until all the ingredients combine. Add the dry ingredients and mix well.
Grease a baking pan and dust lightly with flour. Pour the batter and smooth out the top.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake loaf for 50-55 minutes until golden brown.
Serve warm with a hot cup of cardamon or orange pekoe tea.
Try this, you will just love the fragrance and aromas floating in your kitchen as you bake this!
