Cardamom is the world's third most expensive spice and has the unique ability to cool the body when hot, and heat it when cold. For this reason it's long been considered a powerful aphrodisiac and is why, in this season of fertility and rebirth, I like to use it in my Easter cake.

  • Ingredients:
    For the cake:

    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    2/3 cup sugar
    1 Tbsp baking powder
    1 tsp ground cardamom
    1/2 tsp salt
    5 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small cubes
    1 Tbsp poppy seeds
    1 organic orange, zested and juiced
    1 large egg
    1/2 cup whole milk
    1 tsp orange extract (optional)

    For the topping:
    1/4 cup dark brown sugar
    1/2 Tbsp poppy seeds
    1 Tbsp softened butter
    1/2 tsp coarse French grey salt or fleur de sel

    For the icing:
    3/4 cup icing sugar
    1 1/2 Tbsp reserved orange juice
