Cardamom Infused Lemon Curd Cake

Cardamom and citrus are always an enjoyable combination with tea. So I combined these 2 flavors into a cardamom infused lemon curd cake.

It comes with a spongy texture along with a creamy one making it a great tasty contrast. The curd recipe is based on the one made for my sweet & sour lemon meringue pie.

Let me know if you know other interesting flavor(s) that could pair nicely with the lemon.
