Total time:

180 min


1 Portions


300 g of Manitoba flour
200 g of 00 Flour
250 ml of Milk
80 g of sugar
150 g of Butter
1 Egg
Lemon zest
10 g of Fresh brewer’s yeast
Icing sugar
Amaretto liqueur



First, melt the butter and let it cool.


Warm the milk slightly. In a bowl, place the flour, crumbled yeast and sugar and mix together. Gradually add the melted and cooled butter and milk at room temperature, the egg and begin to knead vigorously until the dough is smooth, homogeneous and elastic.


Cover the dough and leave it to rise for about two hours until it has doubled in volume. Deflate the dough with your hands and make a rectangle about half a centimetre thick.


Use soft butter for the filling, so take it out of the fridge at least 2 hours before starting. Brush the entire dough rectangle with butter and sprinkle the surface with plenty of caster sugar. Cut the dough rectangle with butter into 11 strips. Roll each strip and place them in a well-buttered and floured 24cm diameter baking tin. Cover and leave to rise for about 1 hour.


Once the roses cake has risen, brush it with plenty of butter. Bake the roses cake for about 35 minutes in a static oven at 180° until the surface is golden brown.


In the meantime, prepare the alcoholic syrup: put the water in a saucepan, add the sugar and stir with a whisk. Put the water on the heat without bringing it to the boil and continue stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Turn off the heat and add the amaretto liqueur to the syrup; part of it will evaporate immediately due to the heat in the solution.


Stir again, transfer to a small bowl and leave to cool, stirring occasionally before use. Your alcoholic syrup is now ready.


Now take the roses cake out of the oven and leave it to cool completely. Then, with the help of a brush, sprinkle the entire surface of the cake with the previously prepared alcoholic syrup; alternatively, you can dust it with icing sugar.
