The cardamom is a nice change from the usual seasoning.

this was excellent. I thought hubby was going to lick the pan for more, lol. I'm going to make it again next week. My only changes (and probably would be good either way) was I used 3 tbl butter instead of 1 and I used 1/2 cup real maple syrup and 1/2 cup regular bottled syrup. Really good!
