Rose water brownies


Recommended Posts

So like I said I have been in a baking mood lately so I decided to make some brownies with rose water.




1 stick of butter

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 TBSP rose water

1/2 cup flour

1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees


butter an 8x8 pan and set aside

in a large sauce pan over medium high heat

melt the butter

remove from the heat


add the cocoa powder and stir well


add the sugar, again stirring well


let the mixture cool for 5 minutes or so


add the eggs beating well after each egg


then add the rose water

in a small bowl mix the flour and salt together


pour into the wet ingredients and stir well


do not over beat just stir to combine, making sure there aren't any flour spots left


bake for 25 minutes then turn oven off and let them cool 10 minutes

remove from oven and cool completely



These are a little too salty for my taste so next time I am cutting the salt to a 1/2 teaspoon.

But they are really good otherwise

SO I took my brownies in a box with me today, and had people sample them. The owner of the local Indian restaurant loved them, and told me to back a few pans and he would buy them for the buffet!


and everyone else who ate them loved them. So maybe I will leave the salt content alone. I'm just pretty sensitive to the flavor of salt because I never eat it on my food.

you can make your own rose water. 


all you need is a large pot, a stone to place in the center of the pot, a mason jar, and four quarts of rose petals, and ice


Place the rose petals in the pan around the stone


Place the mason jar on top of the stone


Fill up the pot with water just until it covers the rose petals by about an inch


place the lid to the pot upside so the point of the lid hangs over the mouth of the mason jar


heat the water and rose petals to a boil, and then turn down to a simmer


put a tray or two of ice into the upturned lid


(This is a home made still)


Every twenty minutes or so remove the lid and dip out a few tablespoons of the water from the mason jar

When you get to the having a quart of water its time to stop (as there won't be much rose water left at this point)

Apparently, I am not supposed to make these brownies.  As I approached the shelf at the store, containing the last bottle of rose water, some lady accidently runs her cart into the shelf, knocking the bottle off.  It shattered on the floor.  Fucking seriously?  I am just going to make some brownies and eat them, indignantly.  So there!
