    A Greek cake that tastes a little like the much more complicated Greek dessert, baklava. Posted for ZWT #6.

      Very sweet, sticky, tasty cake! Very different from any cake we've ever had. I almost didn't pour all the syrup over the cake, but then decided, "What the heck!" and did. The cake soaked it all up, (didn't float!), and my husband said he liked it better than baklava! I used freshly grated zest from one small orange, (added to the wet ingredients), and it gave the cake a wonderfully bright citrusy flavor. We even had it right out of the fridge for dessert the next night, and we liked it that way, too, on a nice warm night. Thanks for a great recipe, California Jan! ZWT9

      This was exceptionally moist and very tasty. We had a minor mishap with the sauce, which was no fault of yours - I stepped away from the stove for a minute and it boiled over and made a huge mess! Nevertheless, what we salvaged was very good. I made mini cupcakes but it didn't really help with portion control cause my husband just kept popping them in his mouth! Thanks for the recipe!

      I never write reviews, but, this is worthy of a five star review. Absolutely beautiful!<br/>I love sweet greek cakes and this is by far the best I have ever tasted. If people have a sweet tooth, don't miss this one.<br/>The cake without the syrup is also so very good on it's own, with the syrup it's magic!<br/>Will be making again very soon.<br/>Mark (Greece)
