1 teaspoon cardamon
1 cup sour cream

Grease the pan with 2 teaspoons of butter and sprinkle the bottom and sides of pan with bread crumbs.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, making sure each one is thoroughly mixed before adding another.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and cardamon, and stir half into the batter.
Beat in the sour cream and vanilla, combine well, and add the rest of the flour.
Pour the contents into the pan.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the top of the cake is golden brown and the centre of the cake is fully baked.
