Cake Yazdi - Cardamom Rose Water Muffins کیک یزدی

Cake Yazdi – Cardamom Rose Water Muffins کیک یزدی

Nowrooz is coming and I have a simple, quick, and foolproof recipe to share with you, without any fancy decorations or embellishments. This recipe is for Cake Yazdi – Cardamom Rosewater Muffins کیک یزدی, which is perfect for baking beginners. Although these muffins are made from simple ingredients, they have a unique and special taste. They are fluffy and delicious due to the yogurt and oil in the batter, and have a delicate aroma of cardamom and rosewater. You can garnish them with chopped pistachios and rose petals, but traditionally in Persia, they are sprinkled with sesame seeds. You can choose whichever you prefer. They are best enjoyed with a hot brewed Persian tea (Chai). I hope you enjoy making and eating them! Watch my preparation video on Instagram
