Breakfast or Dessert – Rose Almond Cake – GF Gluten Free

Funny story about this cake … I decided the other night to try and make my own rose water (Which is a very interesting process and will do a separate post about it later) And I had a lot of leftover simmered rose petal water after the process.. so I decided to come up with this cake 🙂 Surprisingly it turned out pretty dang amazing! I hope you guys enjoy its uniqueness as much as I do. Ryan and I have been eating it in the morning with my matcha latte, and his coffee!
