Recipes and techniques to use our favorite spice in new ways! I am inspired by flavors of the ancient trade routes and the Midwestern love of a good Bundt cake with coffee. Perfect for adding richness to your Thanksgiving table, these cakes and a bonus rice pudding are a lovely blend of the familiar and the new.
The class is a combination of presentation and hands-on work. You will learn to make the following:
· Cardamom-chocolate Bundt cake, inspired by the flavors of Turkish coffee
· Cardamom-pear upside down cake, inspired by the 1950s American favorite with pineapple
· Spiced Honey Cake, a harvest cake rich in spices and a traditional part of the Jewish High Holidays
· Persian rice pudding, flavored with cardamom and rosewater
I will discuss the different types of cardamom, how to keep and prepare it for various recipes, and guidelines for your own experiments with adding cardamom to your cooking and baking.
