Apple-Cardamom Cake

Today I celebrated my birthday. My children woke me up with the traditional Happy Birthday singing and a breakfast in bed. We recently just discovered a Dutch bakery, Glamorgan Bakery, that makes one of my favourit breads: Sugar Bread. This bread has a wonderful taste with layers of sugar and ginger syrup. So I got a wonderful slice of fresh sugar bread with my cup of coffee.

I got an elephant teapot, I collect elephants, and tickets for the Worldcup Speedskating from the kids. So off we went, to the Olympic Oval. Great fun, cheering for both the Canadian and the Dutch! We saw Christine Nesbitt skate a world record on the 1000m. Wow, what a power woman!

When we came home my youngest daughter had baked a wonderful Apple Cardamom Cake, this is such a yummie cake, with cinnamon and of course cardamom. The whole house smelled like a warm winter afternoon.
