An Old-Fashioned Recipe
Greek Walnut Sponge Cake is a traditional Greek dessert recipe. It’s a sponge cake, and its texture is like a soft moist pudding. It’s packed with walnuts and flavored with cinnamon and cloves like Baklava. Also, like most Greek desserts its full of syrup. As for the recipe, other than a few alterations of mine, I will have to give credit to a very very old Greek cookbook for this old-fashioned cake recipe.
This recipe is pretty easy and quick to make. You make it the same way you make a cake. And after it’s baked you pour the syrup on top which takes only 5 minutes to make. And the only thing it really requires for you to do is, to add the ingredients to the pot and let it boil. Yep, that simple.
Breadcrumbs Make The Difference
If you go to the ingredients and instructions of this recipe, you will stumble upon breadcrumbs as an ingredient. Weirdly after a few times of using them in some dessert recipes, I came to the conclusion that they make these desserts amazingly crumbly. And especially cakes. Plus they are much more flavorful than plain flour. They cannot be used on their own though so they are used along with some flour. As for what type of breadcrumbs to use, we need some finely powdered ones.
Greek Walnut Sponge Cake Servings And Storing Time
This recipe gives an adequate amount of servings, about 20 out of an 11-inch round pan. If you think they are a bit too much no worries. You may keep it in the fridge for up to a week. Because of its syrup, it won’t spoil. Although I don’t think it will last a week after you try it.
