Express Somali Butter Cake

I call this express because it is really fast and easy to make. It tastes just like the homemade butter cake but it is a lot easier to make and less ingredients.

Cook time about 45 minutes
Serves about 10

1 Package of Yellow cake mix
1 Teaspoon of Cardamom Powder

Follow the recipe on the box of the cake mix (usually eggs, water and oil).

Add the Cardamom Powder.

Mix well with an electric mixer until all lumps are gone.

Spray a bundt cake pan (a circle cake pan) with non stick spray (spray entire pan well).

Pour cake mix in the pan and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

To make sure the cake is cooked all the way through insert a tooth pick or knife in the center of the cake if it comes off clean the cake is done.
