Welcome to Tuesdays with Dorie and Cardamom Crumb Cake. This week's recipe was chosen by Jill of Jill's blog. It took me forever to decide to make this recipe because I didn't have any cardamom. I have looked for this particular spice before but have held off buying it because it is around $9 for a small container. So, like any good baker I started googling substitutes for cardamom. It didn't seem like there were any good substitutes out there. However, I saw several people say that Cardamom could be purchased at World Market for a much lower price.
Handily, our cost plus is located right next to Target. Since I was in need of bubble mailers I was able to take care of two birds with one stone. For future reference Cardamom was $2.99 for a bigger bottle than I could find at other stores. It will also last for quite some time.
This was really easy to throw together. I doubled the recipe and baked it in 6 mini loaf pans. I have a small class and think I will take the loaves to my students tonight.
As I type, the loaves are cooling on the counter and I have two anxious tasters waiting to do their job. :)
