Swedish Sour Cream Cake Recipe

4 cups sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cardamom
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups sour cream
Confectioner’s sugar

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and lightly flour a Bundt cake pan and set aside.

Sift the flour, baking soda and cardamom together. Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs, beat well.

Add the flour mixture and sour cream alternately to the butter mixture. Pour into the prepared pan.

Bake for 1 hour. Cool 5 minutes, then remove cake from the pan and cool on a wire rack. Dust the cake lightly with confectioner’s sugar.
