This is a traditional Greek cake called karithopita where a honey lemon syrup is poured over the lightly spiced walnut cake to create a moist and delicious treat with a minimum of fuss.
Absolutely beautiful. Made this cake for dad's birthday and it was so moist and just moorish. It was very easy to make, just put everything in and mix! I had to double the recipe though as the ingredient amounts make a very small cake, but other then that delicious, especially with a dollop of vanilla cream on the side. Yummy! - 23 Feb 2014
We had to go to a dinner party and I was asked to bring a Greek dessert. I found this one and thought it sounded good, so I made it and brought it. The cake was a hit with all that ate it. I will put this one into my recipe box and make it again. I did make 1 1/2 recipes and put it into a 9x13 cake dish. Thanks for submitting this recipe. - 30 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
The whole family really liked this cake. I used butter instead of shortening and squeezed half a fresh lemon into the syrup (I know I added much more than a teaspoon). I used the food processor to blend the butter into the dry ingredients then mixed the milk, eggs and nuts in with a wooden spoon. In my oven this baked in 30 minutes. - 06 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
