Semi-homemade Rosewater Cake With Pistachio Cream

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:29 AM by inspirationsbysd

We were invited over for dinner at our friend’s last night, I actually had one of the best taboolas and waraq 3anab over there *drool* but anyway I made a rosewater flavored sponge cake, with a layer of pistachio cream in between. I wanted to share with you guys the easy steps to making what turned out to be a good cake! hehe here is an other version I made but with ice cream.

Here is what you need:

Betty Crocker White cake mix, Rosewater, Rose syrup, Bake Easy (optional)

You can use any white cake mix, but I personally prefer Pillsbury or Betty Crocker. Follow the directions on the back of the box, but when its time to add the one cup of water that is required, add two bottle caps full of rose syrup in the cup of water and then into the mix, then add two bottle caps of rosewater to the entire mix (you will still need the rosewater so keep that in hand for after baking the cake).

Meanwhile spray your non stick pans (two round pans) with bake easy, even though they are non-stick I still prefer using the bake easy spray because with a cake like this, you need it to really pop out of the pan in one piece as you will be flipping it over the other.

This is what the batter looks like after adding the rose syrup to it

and in the pans it goes bake for 30 min

After the cake bakes, let it cool while you prepare the pistachio cream…

add crushed pistachio and halves to your whipped cream, I also added 2 tspoons of pistachio cream I got from Eataly NYC which has the same texture of peanut butter and also a bottle cap full of rosewater

After the cake cools, lightly sprinkle the cake with one more bottle cap full of rosewater (trust me the flavor will not be overwhelming at all)

cover the top layer of the first half of the cake with the pistachio cream you mixed

add the second layer of cake on top and cover the entire cake with the remaining pistachio cream

Get fresh roses/petals lightly wash them and dry them out then arrange them around the entire cake for garnishing

Here is what it looks like from the inside ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy!

Luv,

    • ims85: 6abee3ee, mnn ma7alat alward, bs its ok to use, rose petals are edible, just make sure you lightly wash them before use…
      if you prefer not to use fresh rose petals, you can also use sugared rose petals you can find at places like Dean & Deluca
