My Dad has always been a big fan of Turkish delight, (although you can only buy 'Cyprus Delights' here!) so when I saw these Turkish Delight Cupcakes over at Cakes Photos Life I thought I'd make him some.
3 medium eggs
Drop of vanilla essence
Rose water - about 3 drops but according to taste
Thinly sliced Cyprus (or Turkish) Delight
Mix the cake batter as you normally would.
Place a third of the mixture into the cake cases and add a slice of 'Delight'
Cover with the remaining batter and cook as you would for a normal sponge cake. (usually about 180deg for approx 20 minutes)
Although it didn't show up well on the photo I piped pink butter cream flavoured with little rose water onto the cooled cakes. You could also if you wish decorate with an extra piece of 'Delight'
I was really pleased with the finished cakes, although they weren't quite a pretty looking as the ones I originally got the idea from, they were yummy!
