      This cake is WOW. We served it tonight to dinner guests at a Greek Themed dinner, and they were speechless. It is THAT good. Very moist, and yes, it gets better after it "sits" and melds for about 24 hours. I modified it a tad. For the syrup, I used only 3/4 c. each sugar honey, and only 1/4 c water. I used 1/4 c Orange juice instead of the lemon juice, and the end result was just amazing. Our dinner had so much "lemon" flavor, which is why I leaned toward the "orange" flavor for this cake/dessert. I was a bit nervous about the huge amount of "syrup" to pour over the cake (even though I reduced the amount of syrup ingredients), but the cake absorbed it all. What an astounding flavor and texture. Thank you, Kittencal!

      I made this two days ago for dessert and I am still basking in the glow from all of the praise. DH moves desserts, and has no special preference. Anything is fine with him. Now he has a favorite! He said how great it was at LEAST 4 times during dessert, and 2-3 times later. He / we all loved this. It is a "one-of-a-kind" unique dessert that is certain to WOW guests. I can't wait to try it for a dinner with friends. BUT, I always give you credit, Kitten whenever folks rave over my (your) new recipe! <br/> have to add vanilla ice cream too. The best!

      This is a pleasing cake with plenty of sweetness and spice...a fun spin on the flavors of baklava! Smells delicious while baking. I think the next time I will use less orange zest as the orange flavor was a bit stronger than I prefer for my own taste...this one is a keeper for sure, and was a great dessert for my Greek dinner!
