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.

  • 200 grams cake flour (with yeast)
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 175 grams softened butter
  • 4 eggs

  5. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, add the lemon zest, and whisk fast.
  6. Pour the dough into the pan, and bake for 30 minutes until cooked.
  7. Meanwhile, make the syrup.
  8. Boil the boil lemon juice and 5 tablespoons of powdered sugar, stirring until the sugar is well dissolved.

I made this cake for a friend who is not a fan of desserts that are covered in chocolate or stuffed with cream and she loved it. The rose water and lemon taste lovely together. And it was delicious a few days later. I want to make these again, but I think I will do them as individual little tea cakes.
