Ingredients (Makes two 8 inch sandwich tins)

  • 200 grams Caster Sugar
  • 230 grams Butter
  • 230 grams Self-raising Flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp Rose Extract
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped Pistachios
  • 2 tbsp dried Rose Petals
  • 1 tbsp of pistachios and rose petals each to garnish

Sugar glaze

  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • Warm water


  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees fan oven.
  • Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy for 5 mins.
  • Add lightly beaten eggs, Rose extract and beat for 2 minutes.
  • Add flour and baking powder (beat for less than 1o seconds in medium speed). Fold everything in with a spatula.
  • Gently fold in 2 tbsp chopped pistachios and 2 tbsp dried rose petals
  • Bake for about 25-30 mins (if in sandwich tins) or 45 minutes (if in deep pan) or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • Invert in a wire rack and let it cool completely.
  • Prepare sugar glaze by mixing 1/4 cup icing sugar with enough warm water to thin it enough so it is spreadable. Spread this glaze over cake layers.
  • Garnish with dried pistachios and rose petals

You can serve this cake with or without buttercream.

Buttercream flavouring idea - Flavour your buttercream with rose extract instead of vanilla extract.
