Easy to make and delicious.

I've made this more than any other cake recipe I've ever used. It's light, lemony and just sweet enough. My preference is to triple the amount of cardamom because I'm used to strong cardamom flavors in my culture's cuisine and it tastes amazing that way too.

This cake was excellent! My only lack was too little lemon zest, which left me wanting more lemon in the cake overall. Next time I just need to buy more lemons!
