Rosewater Cupcake Recipe

 

Delicately scented with rosewater, these gorgeous pink cupcakes are perfect for girls who like extra-pretty.  I like pale pink sugared rose petals on mine, but darker pink or white will look just lovely.  For an extra indulgence, try stirring 2 oz. chopped Turkish delight into the cake mixture before spooning it into the paper liners.

ROSEWATER CUPCAKES

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon rosewater

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale and fluffy, then beat in the eggs, one at a time.  Sift the flour into the mixture and fold in, then stir in the rosewater.

Spoon the mixture into the paper liners and bake in the preheated oven for about 17 minutes until risen and golden and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

To Decorate

  • 12 pink rose petals
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
  • 1 1/2-2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioners sugar sifted
  • red food coloring

To decorate, brush each rose petal with egg white, then sprinkle with the superfine sugar and let dry for about 1 hour.

Put the 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice in a bowl, then sift the confectioners sugar into the bowl and stir until smooth.  Add a little more lemon juice as required to make a smooth, spoonable frosting.  Add one or two drops of food coloring to achieve a pale pink frosting, then drizzle over the cupcakes.  Top each one with a sugared rose petal.  Let set before serving.
