Cream together the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until the mixture is pale and smooth. Add the eggs one at a time beating for a few minutes between each addition.

Combine the two flours in a a seperate bowl. Mix the rosewater with the milk in a jug and test it: rosewater varies in quality and strength, so taste the mixture and adjust the amount you need. Add one-third of the flours to the creamed mixture and beat well, pour in 0ne-third of the milk and beat again. Repeat until all the flour and milk have been used.

Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases and bake for about 25 minutes until slightly raised and golden brown.

Leave in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool, while you make the buttercream frosting.

Makes approx 18 cupcakes, depending on size.
