2. Combine flour and light-brown sugar in a small bowl. Cut cold butter into 1-inch pieces and add to bowl. With pastry blender or fingertips, mix butter into flour and sugar until mixture is the texture of coarse meal. Stir in walnuts, cinnamon and cardamom until combined.

Make Coffeecake:

3. Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cardamom in a medium-size bowl.

4. Using an electric mixer, beat together the room-temperature butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl at medium speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy, for about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla, beating until smooth. On low speed, alternately beat in the dry ingredients and milk, beginning and ending with the addition of the dry ingredients. Mix just until all ingredients are blended.

Carefully grasp foil edges to lift from pan with coffeecake. Cut cake into squares; remove from foil. Serve warm.
