    You can substitute the chickpea flour for regular or soy flour even, but the chickpeas add a nice nuttiness to the cake.

    This sounds so lovely - I am a huge fan of rosewater in cooking so this is perfect for me. Can I substitute the chickpea flour or should I venture out into the world and track it down?
