Karydopita is a Greek dessert cake made primarily from walnuts and covered in a sweet syrup. Its name is a compound word which derives from “karýdia” (Greek for walnuts) and “pita” (Greek for pie)
There are several variations of the dish, with unique ingredients used in both the syrup and cake. Some common additions include, but are not limited to, orange zest, cloves, brown sugar, and spiced rum or cognac.
Fluffy and extra syrupy! A mouthwatering Greek walnut cake recipe, scented with the aromas and blends of cinnamon and grounded clove.
