Oven 375ºF

In large mixer bowl combine 1+1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, cardamom, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger; mix well. Heat water, milk, and butter to 120º to 130ºF; butter does not need to melt. Add to flour mixture; add eggs. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff batter.

Spoon batter into well greased 12-cup Bundt® pan. Cover; let rise in warm place until light and double in size, about 1½ hours. Bake at 375ºF for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan; cool. Sift powdered sugar over top before serving.


*You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) Yeast in place of Active Dry Yeast in batter/no knead recipes. When using Instant Yeast, expect your batter/dough to rise about 50% faster. Adjust your rise times accordingly. Traditional methods: use equal amounts; Bread Machine: use 1/2 tsp Instant Yeast OR 3/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast per cup of flour in your recipe. Visit our Lessons in Yeast & Baking for more information on baking.
