Cardamom Bread Recipe

Yields1 Serving

Cardamom is a spice sometimes used in pie recipes like apple pie and apple desserts.  It’s also used to accent fruit dishes and as a flavoring for sweet potatoes.  It originates in Central America and sometimes appears in curries and contemporary Scandinavian dishes. It occasionally appears in breads because of its unique savory and aromatic flavor-note.

 ¼ cup of water + ½ cup of evaporated milk at 110 degrees F./43 degrees C. (An easy way to do this is to combine the milk and water in a Pyrex measuring cup and microwave on high for 1-minute. The resulting temperature should be very close to 110 degrees).
 3 tablespoons of sugar
 1 teaspoon of active dry yeast
 1 ½ teaspoons of butter at room temperature
 3 cups of bread flour
 1 teaspoon of salt
 1 egg
 1 teaspoon of ground cardamom

Add all of the ingredients to the bread machine in the order indicated in the recipe.


Select the basic white bread setting for a 1.5-pound loaf and medium crust.


When done, remove loaf from the bread pan and let rest on a wire rack for 10 minutes.


Slice and serve.
