- 2/3 cup sugar

- 2 tsp rosewater
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare the Rosebud Cakelet pan with baking spray containing flour and evenly coat wells using a pastry brush. Using a mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time then add in rosewater. Sift flour with baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Alternately add to butter mixture with the yogurt. Stir until smooth and creamy, but don’t overmix. Fill each well with 2 Tbsp of batter or a little over half full . Gently tap pan on counter top to remove air bubbles. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until toothpick test comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes then invert cakes onto a cooling rack. Repeat with remaining batter.
While cakes are cooling, prepare grapefruit glaze. Mix all ingredients until smooth. Glaze should be a thinner consistency. When cakes are ready, spoon glaze over cooled cakelets and allow to set. Makes about 12 roses.
