Beat the egg yolks and caster sugar until light and creamy. Stir in a semolina, cashews, rose water, honey, lemon rind, spices and almond essence.

Beat egg whites until they hold firm peaks and fold into the mixture, turn into prepare tin and bake in moderately slow oven until cake is evenly golden brows on top and feels firm to the touch.

If cake starts to brown too quickly, cover top with paper or foil.

Do not attempt to turn out this cake. Cut into small squares and lift each one separately on to serving plate.
