    Elaniemay's Note:

    In Greek keik is pronounced: cake. Similar to a pound cake, this is a simple cake with a touch of orange flavor. It can be embellished with chocolate, nuts, raisins, or other additions to your taste, but this is the basic recipe.

      Very easy to make. I added one half tablespoon of orange blossom water but I think a full tablespoon would have been better. A pinch or two of cinnamon might kick it up a notch in the flavor department, too. Two tablespoons cognac and had this prepped and baked in less than 1 hour. Reviewed for ZWT 6.
