Recipe: Greek Walnuts Cake

Summary: My favorite authentic walnut cake recipe. this recipe comes from Cephalonia (Kefalonia), an island in the Ionian Sea.  Self-rising flour and results in a wonderful dark spice and nut cake soaked in a sweet syrup, topped with a sprinkle of more walnuts.

If you don’t have the time to bake, this recipe is very easy and it looks like you spend hours baking this cake.

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13×9 inches pan. Beat all the ingredients for 2 minutes until well combined. Add the walnuts and fold Bake for 35 to40 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out dry. Invert on a plate cool. Pour the hot syrup on the cake and wait a couple hours and serve.
