What makes a Persian love cake unique?
Now that we know about this magical cake, let’s dig into the important ingredients
For maximum light and fluffy texture, this cake has 50% normal flour and 50% almond meal. Aside from other regular ingredients such as sugar, oil, etc…this cake also has a touch of cardamom, rosewater, and lemon zest.
Now, there’s more to it than that. Aside from the base, there is a special syrup that this cake is glazed with, which has extra flavor and extra moistness. This syrup consists of sugar, lemon juice, and rosewater. The aromatic creation is topped off with chopped pistachios and rosebud petals. I like to also add a special glaze to my cake before garnishing, which assures extra moistness and the best texture possible!
