Walnut Cake "Karithopita"


A traditional Greek Dessert that is simple to make.


1/2 cup butter 1 tsp. soda
1 cup sugar 2 tbs. cognac
5 eggs Syrup:
1 cup milk 2 cups of sugar
2 cups chopped walnuts 1 cups of water
1 tsp. cinnamon 2 tbs. cognac
1/4 tsp. ground cloves 1 tbs. lemon juice
1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs 1 tbs. orange juice
1 1/2 cups flour 1 cinnamon stick
3 tsp. baking powder  

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 13 x 9 baking pan. In a bowl combine the walnuts, cinnamon, cloves, breadcrumbs, flour, and baking powder.  In a small glass, dilute the soda with the cognac.  In a large bowl of a mixer, cream the butter with the sugar and then add the eggs. Mix in the soda with cognac, and add the milk and the walnut mixture, beating until well combined.  Spread into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until the center is firm.

Prepare the syrup by mixing all the ingredients together in a medium sauce pan. Bring it to a boil and pour it over the baked cake.  Let the cake cool completely before serving.

Susie's Note:  This is excellent with fresh whipped cream.
