Greek Orange Cake

The standard baklava is the Greek dessert that most Americans have probably heard of. It’s one of my all-time favorite treats, but I hadn’t tried many other Greek sweets before, which was a mistake! I recently came across a recipe for Greek Orange Cake, which is also known as Portokalopita in Greek. I was quickly interested in it.

The phyllo dough is also used to make this cake, but the steps are very different. It tastes incredibly strong of orange and has the best texture ever.With more than a cup of orange juice and a lot of fresh orange zest, this treat is just the right amount of sweet and sour. The phyllo dough is split up and allowed to dry out a bit. It is then torn or crumbled into little bits.

Then it’s added to the tasty orange batter and baked for 35 minutes, or until it’s golden. A simple orange syrup is made on the stove and then poured over the warm cake right after it’s cooked. This makes sure that every bite is extra moist.

After a few hours, let the sauce soak into the cake. Then it’s time to eat! It’s great as a snack in the afternoon or as a dessert late at night. One of our favorite things to eat is a slice with vanilla ice cream. Try making this traditional Greek dessert instead of the same old things you always bake. It will become a new favorite.
