Greek Honey Cake
So I made a Greek feast tonight using the recipes already in my blog, plus appetizers that included Olives, Hummus, Pita chips,
Tzatziki sauce & cucumbers. Finish that off with a Mediterranean spritzer and a great dessert and it will surely leave your guests in a GREEK FOOD COMA!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch square pan.
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and orange zest. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until a
toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
For the Honey Syrup: In a saucepan, combine honey, 1 cup sugar and water. Bring to a
simmer and cook 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes
Allow to cool for 15 minutes, then cut into diamond shapes. Pour honey syrup over the cake.
So delicious and refreshing. It is light after such a big GYRO meal <3 div="div" nbsp="nbsp">
