Cardamom Cake


This cake is pretty rich and slightly exotic.  Made with butter, four eggs and a hint of ginger and cardamom, it's a wonderful treat!  I've been eating it slightly warm, topped with a little extra butter and honey.  It's already an indulgence, so why not take it all the way!?  This recipe has been adapted from "Almond Pound Cake" from TLC.

1/2 C butter (one stick), softened
1/2 C home made yogurt

In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients
