  1. I made this for mother's day. At first it was way too undercooked (and I cooked for an extra 5 minutes), and the syrup was not all absorbed. Tonight, I put it back in the over for like another 40 minutes at the same temperature, making sure it got really brown and crispy before soaking it. That was much better.

  2. Hello…I am planning to make half a size of this measurement….do I have to keep the same temperture and timing or will that run by half too? THX

  3. I have watched and read different recipes about this cake and yours seems a little different. The other ones use orange juice in the preparation and they mix all the ingredient together to form a more liquid moisture. This ends up with a thicker cake after the cooking process. Because i don't actually know how the orginal greek cake should be, i was wondering if your choice to whep the eggs properly (as i have normally seen in different cake recipes) is due to a personal taste or it respects however a tradizional greek preparation.
