- Serve with margarine and confectioners sugar, or pancake syrup. Another yummy substitute is Lemon Curd.
I haven't made this yet, but I am wondering if you can tell me what rose water is and where I could find it? We have just begun a GFCF diet for my autistic daughter and adhd son and I am desperate for recipes! I love 'zaar and love cooking for my family, but since our dietary change, it seems like a daunting task, so I was excited to see your recipe. Thank you!
