This is an incredibly easy and rewarding bread to make. It is perfect for the holiday season, especially if you decorate it up, but I would be more than happy to eat this all year round. My cardamon bread is perfect with a cup of coffee for breakfast or any time of day. 

These quantities will give you enough dough for two loaves. For variety I normally make one filled loaf and one plain loaf.
