My fiancee loves Turkish delight and rose flavoured desserts. I found this recipe online from Julie LeClerc (love her cookbooks!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  2. Grease and flour a 12-hole standard muffin pan (or 36 mini) or line with individual paper cases.
  3. Cream butter and sugar until pale. Beat in eggs, rose water and sour cream.
  4. Fold in sifted dry ingredients.
  5. Pour into prepared tins and poke a piece of Turkish delight into each (cut Turkish delight to fit mini size).
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or 15 minutes for mini size or until a skewer inserted into the cake part (not the Turkish delight part) comes out clean. Makes 12 (or 36 mini) cup cakes.

You have no idea how much I love Turkish Delight, and when I saw this recipe, I just had to try it. This was so moist, it was really good. I couldn't find rose flavoured Turkish Delight, so I used a regular kind, which I found good because the rose water added it's own special flavour.
