I was excited and looking forward to making this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe.
I love turkish delight.
I love raspberries.
And… I love lychees (I have eaten kilos of them this summer).
Yes, I know there are no lychees in this cake however the three ingredients were now linked in my mind and this cake was going to be awesome!
And it was!
The cake is made mostly of almond flour so the texture is moist and delicate.
The recipe calls for rose syrup and rose extract. My chances of finding either were slim, so I used a good quality rose water and the flavour came through beautifully.
To be honest, I liked the taste and texture of the cake so much, I wouldn’t have minded the loaf plain, without the raspberries.
It was that good!
I am looking forward to catching up with the rest of the French Fridays with Dorie group and see what they thought of this week’s recipe.
