Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat oven to 350 F.
  • Generously grease a 8x12 inch pan with shortening and dust with flour. Lightly pound rose geranium leaves between sheets of wax paper and arrange in the bottom of the pan.
  • In a bowl with an electric mixer or a food processor beat together egg whites and sugar.
  • Continue beating until the sugar dissolves.
  • Beat in the oil, salt, vanilla extract and rose water.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  • Add the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the egg and oil mixture.
  • Mix only until no flour is visible.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown on the top and firm to the touch.
  • Cool for 20 minutes.
  • Turn out of pan.
  • Allow to cool completely on wire rack.
  • Peel off leaves when the cake is completely cool.
  • Decorate according to your liking.
