Description

With a refreshing citrus flavor from fresh lemon juice, the addition of a rose water makes this drizzle cake a delectable summertime treat. The rose water cake is first baked and then drizzled with a sweet lemon syrup while still warm to allow the lemon flavor to reach every part of the cake. Drizzled with a rose water frosting, this cake is an elegant treat. Be sure to use cake flour with yeast to get the right texture in the end.
