Let's make Valentines Day Persian Love Cake

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease a deep, 9inch round cake tin with a removeable base and line the bottom with baking parchment.

Step 2

Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl and whisk with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

Step 3

Place the cardamom pods in a mortar and bash with a pestle until the seeds come out of the pods. Discard the pods and grind the seeds to a fine powder.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, sift together the ground cardamom, nutmeg, almonds, flour, baking powder and salt.

Step 5

Whisk the eggs into the butter mixture one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Add a heaped spoonful of the dry ingredient mixture with each one to prevent the mixture from curdling.
