Every woman likes to receive roses as a gift. But we have different tradition at home to bring me mangoes or apples that I eat a lot, or rose jam and rose water instead of roses works even better, so I could eat them, not just smell. Haha! 🙂
This recipe probably doesn’t look like a standard cooking recipe, but I can’t stop myself complicating it including a lot of unusual and difficult to find ingredients sometimes.
But don’t reject the idea of cooking it if you are missing rose water or rose jam. You can play with flavours. The main idea in this dish is to use apple in the dough, what was my goal to achieve in the recipe. And this is the main thing I am in love with in it.
Have you ever tried rose jam? I doubt that it can be found in our local shops, but it is very specific for the Bulgarian cuisine. If you have ever been to Bulgaria, you couldn’t pass by rose jam. It is sold all over around and is usually brought by visitors as souvenir.
In fact, this is the only thing I have borrowed from Bulgarian culture. The taste is very unique and it is like when you are smelling extremely fragrant rose and you can’t get enough just smelling it and you start eating it.

The same recipe can be used for cooking muffins, if you are lazy to bake pancakes or want to serve them as a dessert. Simply add more baking powder to make it more puffy and reduce water to 100 ml. Additionally, put some nuts in the dough as your own twist in the recipe.
