I am a crushy kind of person. You could call it phases, but that doesn’t sound as adorable. And let me tell you, I’m freakin’ adorable. Current crushes as of now? Let me list them for you!
Parks and Recreation (and in turn, Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones)
Babies… particularly this amazing little guy
James McAvoy (always…)
And lastly, cardamom
Yes, it’s true. I have a spice crush on cardamom. If I were to open up a bakery, I would name it Cardamom Bakery because I love it that much.
Are you familiar with this wonderful spice? If not, you’re missing out. It has a citrusy quality to it that seems to brighten everything it is paired with. I particularly like it with blueberries and peaches.
In this cake, though, coconut and cardamom are the perfect pair. Somehow the cardamom mellows out the coconut so it’s no longer a heavy flavor, but something light and dangerously good. Everytime I make this cake, it never lasts more than 2 days.
People love this cake. I myself am notorious for sneaking two pieces… and by sneaking I mean that I loudly announce “I’m getting another piece! So judge me!”
