So delicious. This is Fillipos from the bakery’s recipe for Honey Cake which you can buy at the bakery or have served with coffee over at Theo’s Kafenio.

Let me know how yours turns out!


1 cup of flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
A good pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Grated zest of orange (Straight from tree is best – trap that vitamin C)
3/4 cup of butter
3/4 cup of white sugar
3 village eggs
1/4 cup of milk
1 cup of chopped walnuts (Mitsos says he has a surplus if anyone needs some)
1 cup f honey (See Frona or Sarah, their wild flower honey is unbeatable)
3/4 of a cups of water
Squirt of fresh lemon.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). You will need a 9 inch square tin, best to grease it well.

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and orange rind so they are ready for when you need them.

Cream together the butter and sugar, either with a an electric whisk or with the back of a wooden spoon, until fluffy.

Beat in the eggs one by one.

Add the already mixed dry ingredients, alternately this with the milk. Pop the walnuts in along the way.

Bake for about 40 mins.

For the honey syrup: put the honey, 1 cup sugar and water into a pot and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the lemon juice and boil it for 2 mins. Pour this over your  cake once it has cooled.

  2. This sounds wonderful, Sarah. I’m going to try it soon. Should I use the zest of one whole orange? Thanks! Btw, loved “The Rush Cutter’s Legacy”. One of my favorites from the series.
