    In the bowl of a stand mixer, add butter and sugar. Use the whisk attachment and whisk on high speed until light and fluffy.

    Stop the mixer and crack the eggs into the bowl. Keep whisking for another 4-5 minutes or until everything is mixed well.

  • Step 5

    Sift the flour, almond flour, ground cardamom, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the mixer bowl.
