Gorgeous and indulgent, rich rosewater chiffon cake with fresh strawberry glaze perfectly marries the most aromatic summer flavors together.

Hello my friends! Sorry for the lack of posting last week, but I am back today and in true Peas & Peonies fashion I am starting the week with cake. Yes, on this blog Mondays are not for salad, we celebrate the start of the week with something sweet and beautiful. This time I am bringing you Rosewater Chiffon Cake that is covered in the most aromatic strawberry glaze.

Rosewater Chiffon Cake with Fresh Strawberry Glaze

Rosewater Chiffon Cake with Fresh Strawberry GlazeIf you can get your hands on some fresh strawberries from the farmers market, you must make this cake. I am going to help you with some step by step photos, so you can see that its really easy, and the result is the most flavorful, rich and fabulous cake. I baked it in a bundt pan for a more festive look, and I must say that I like how it turned out.

Rosewater Chiffon Cake with Fresh Strawberry GlazeThe ingredients are nothing crazy, probably you have them on hand, the once that are a little uncommon are the “cream of tartar” and “rosewater”, if you don’t bake like me on a regular basis you may need to purchase these two.

Rosewater Chiffon Cake with Fresh Strawberry GlazeThe technique used to make the batter for this cake is almost the same as for any other cakes, you mix the dry ingredients, you beat the egg yolks and add them to the dry ingredients, the only difference is that you must separate the egg whites from egg yolks, and the egg whites are the last ones that are carefully folded into the batter. That one extra step is what makes the texture of this cake so rich and dense, not light, airy and fluffy as other cakes.

Rosewater Chiffon Cake with Fresh Strawberry GlazeAs I said the cake is rich and buttery, and it has a prominent rosewater aroma that is refreshing, sweet and I must say somehow romantic, perfect for those summer nights that you spend with your loved one sipping some tea and sharing slices of this cake.

Rosewater Chiffon Cake with Fresh Strawberry GlazeThe strawberry glaze is made of fresh strawberries and powdered sugar, and since its not very thick it runs down the cake and creates a strawberry syrup that the bottom of the cake soaks, but never gets soggy. That is the perfect pairing to the rich and decadent rosewater infused cake crumbles, marrying beautifully with the sweetness and freshness of the strawberries.

Rosewater Chiffon Cake with Fresh Strawberry GlazeAs much as I say that you should always keep dessert to yourself and never share, and as much I would love to devour this cake by myself, this is a dessert that must be celebrated and enjoyed with the people you love. The hot and aromatic summery flavors are combined here, in a sweet and indulgent treat that celebrates summer, family, friendship and love.

Gorgeous and indulgent, rich rosewater chiffon cake with fresh strawberry glaze perfectly marries the most aromatic summer flavors together.
Ingredients
  • 7 eggs, whites and yolks separated
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon rosewater
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • [b]Strawberry Glaze:[/b]
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • Dash salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Place egg whites in a large bowl and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
  3. Place oven rack in the middle position. Grease a bundt pan or 10 inch tube pan with a little melted butter or baking spray.
  4. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  5. In another bowl, using an electric mixer fitted with the wire attachment, whisk the egg yolks, water, oil and rosewater until combined.
  6. Add to dry ingredients and beat until well blended.
  7. Add cream of tartar and egg whites to a clean bowl and with clean beaters, beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Using a spatula, carefully and slowly fold half of the whites into batter, then fold in remaining whites.
  8. Gently spoon into the greased pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake 50-55 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched or a wood tester comes out clean, with just a few crumbs attached.
  9. Cool completely, about 1 hour, before adding the glaze.
  10. Remove cake to a serving plate that has some high edges to avoid spilling the strawberry syrup.

  12. Add the berries to a food processor and blend until completely pureed.
  13. Transfer the strawberry puree to a bowl and add the salt and powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until well combined and the desired thickness of the glaze has been achieved.
  14. Pour the glaze on top of the cake, let it run down the bottom of the cake, the cake will partially absorb the strawberry syrup.

  10. What a breathtaking cake! I bet the rosewater makes the cake that much more perfect!

  11. This sounds delicious. I absolutely love rose flavored desserts. I was visiting a local patisserie where they sell rose Turkish delights and I bought a ton. The owner said that not enough people enjoy the rose flavor, but that it’s common in Turkey (where she’s from)(and it is in India too!) This cake sounds great! My mom loves using rose extract or essence in desserts, it gives an even stronger rose flavor!

    • Hi Vineetha, you are right this flavor is so popular in Turkey and India, I especially think that those countries make their desserts a little more flavorful and aromatic as they are not afraid to experiment with spices and extracts! I was in Turkey recently, actually last week for a very short time, well technically a few hours only, but even in a few hours I got a chance to stock up on amazing dessert like baklava and enjoyed their dry ice cream which is to die for.

  12. So pretty and it looks delicious. Gorgeous photos as well.
