Greek bazaars are known for their great food and incredible desserts, and that's just where we got this recipe! The Greek woman who shared it with us spoke very little English, but her baking communicated smiles to everybody.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Grated rind of one lemon
  • 1 cup water
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Coat a 9" x 13" baking pan with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, cream the butter then add 1 cup sugar and the eggs. Blend well and add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon alternately with the milk. Mix in the nuts and lemon rind.
     
  3. Blend well and pour into prepared baking pan. Bake 45 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
     
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine remaining 1-1/4 cups sugar and the water over medium heat, and boil 15 minutes.
     
  5. Pour sauce over cake while both are still warm. Turn off the oven and return cake to warm oven for 5 minutes.

Yields 12 to 16 slices.
 

Note

This cake is best served warm. If you're not going to serve it right after baking, just pop it in the microwave on low power for about 1 minute or in a 250 degree F. oven for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

Backwoods Pork Chops with River Gravy

We pour a river of gravy over these mouthwateringly juicy, fried pork chops to complete our recipe for Backwoods Pork Chops with River Gravy. Between the perfectly seasoned pork and the buttermilk-based gravy, we just can't decide what we like best!
