ROSE CARDAMOM AND BLOOD ORANGE LOAF CAKE


ROSE CARDAMOM AND BLOOD ORANGE LOAF CAKE



The soft light of dawn peaked through the frost-laced window, bestowing a rosy pink glow across the room. Before I could make my way to put the kettle on, the smell of sweetly aromatic rose and cardamom greeted me like an unraveling bloom, radiating into the world just as the morning sun rises and warms. The air already tasted sweet, spicy and slightly floral.
