"This bread is commonly made during the Christmas season but can be enjoyed anytime of the year. It smells delicious as it's kneading and baking and it makes wonderful French toast. It is made using the dough cycle of your bread machine." — Darcy

I'm giving this recipe 4 stars as it is. With these changes I'd say it's 5 stars. I've made this bread 5 times now. It does need more cardamom, 1 tsp works well. I also use less flour, about 2 3/4 cup. And I use 1 tsp of salt. I learned that the hard way. The first few times I made it it would fall in the middle, then I researched bread making and I learned that the salt keeps it from falling in the middle. Now I love making this bread and giving it as gifts, it's really delicious.
I made this using my KitchenAid mixer, and found that I'd made a mistake dumping in all the flour called for, it could have used maybe as much as half a cup less. It was way too stiff, and the resulting loaf wasn't as light as I prefer. I made some deep slashes in the dough before proofing in the pan, and after baking, brushed all over with butter. It was a very pretty bread, and the flavor was simple; mildly sweet. But the cardamom didn't show thru like I'd hoped.
This bread is wonderful. I tripled the amount of cardamom and used 1/2 cup less flour than called for. This bread is aromatic, tasty, and perfectly risen. I baked it in the bread machine, and it is a beautiful loaf. It has a nice, crunchy crust.
Also good kept in the bread machine the whole time, under 1.5 lb, light crust setting. Yum!
Excellent, light, moist texture. I made 12 rolls. On the advice of several reviewers here I doubled the cardamom, and I feel it was a mistake to do so. That much cardamom gave it a medicinal taste. Perhaps it was because the bottle of cardamom was brand new, so it was more potent - don't know for sure. Shame on me - I should have followed the recipe as written the first time, since I believe that subtlety works so much better in bread products than in-your-face spice does. As written, this recipe is most likely just about perfect.
Worked out pretty well. Maybe needed a tad less flour. I added a full tsp cardamom and probably could have even gone stronger. Mildly sweet and good with carrot and leek soup.
I made 12 rolls and baked them for 22 minutes in a 350 oven. I could have taken them out at 20 minutes. They got a bit too brown. These were crusty on the outside, which is good, but I thought they could use a little bit more salt.
I used 2 tsp. freshly ground cardamon seeds which gave it a nice aromatic but not overwhelming flavor - very good texture and taste.
