This dish is extremely easy to make and is delicious on its own or with fresh cream whipped with a touch of cinnamon, served with a Greek coffee. The following recipe is my aunts
Preheat the oven to 160°C and line a 20–25 cm round cake tin with baking paper.
Place the olive oil, orange juice, cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon until the sugar dissolves a little.
Gradually add the fl our, mixing well, then add the walnuts, followed by the baking powder. Stir until well combined.
Pour the cake mix into the tin and bake for 15 minutes.
Reduce the temperature to 130°C and bake for a further 40 minutes or until cooked (a skewer inserted into the centre should come out clean). Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
