Personal Notes:
Cardamom was introduced to me in cooking by my friend Marlyn Smith, we lived by each other in a trailer court in Kent, Wa. We were very young and poor and she had great recipes. Her food always tasted good. I made this at Christmas time when the children were young. I would make loafs of this bread and give it away.
