Roll dough into a log shape and place in a greased loaf tin. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise until doubled in size. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 ºC for 35-40 minutes. While bread is baking, place sugar, water and cardamom pods in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer until reduced by half. Remove cardamom pods. As soon as the bread comes out of the oven, brush the syrup over the top and allow to soak in. Serve sliced for breakfast or tea. Makes 1 loaf.
