Cardamom Caraway Seed Cake

This is an unusually flavored cake with a light texture..Keeps well on the shelf for a few days.Tastes best the following day after baking it..Moreover its damn too easy to make !!Those who are fond of cardamom flavor will find its aroma too tempting..Once the cake cools down to room temperature,keep it airtight in a Tupperware container for one day and open it next day morning.. Believe me,the vanilla-cardamom combo aroma you get,will be too yummy to resist!!..
