Because I’m a vegan gal, I love the challenge of making any recipe suitable for me and my family-vegan style. It actually turned out great. Of course, I have no idea what its texture would be like with the original ingredients, but my bread came out very soft, and slightly dense. It had a sweet, earthy and very aromatic taste. It’s altogether delicious. If you have never tried cardamom, it’s a very rustic and earthy spice used often in Indian and Scandinavian dishes. Don’t be put off by its strong, pungent bouquet. It’s warm flavor is quite mild in this recipe and balanced very nicely by the sweetness from the sugar. This recipe will definitely go in my cookbook journal. It was a big hit with my family. Thank you Moki for the recipe!
