Every year for the Jewish New Year I made my grandmother's family recipe for honey cake. Last year I wanted to do something different and I found this recipe for Greek Honey cake . I served it to the family and it was an instant hit.

How to Make GREEK HONEY CAKE

    combine sugar, honey and water in saucepan. Simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Add lemon juice and boil two minutes. Set aside for later.
  3. FOR CAKE: Combine flour, baking powder, salt, orange rind , cinnamon . Set aside
  4. CAKE: Cream together, softened butter, sugar, eggs and milk.
  5. CAKE: add dry ingredients to wet and mix well.
  6. CAKE: mix in chopped walnuts (original recipe calls for chopped but I found them too heavy, so I grind them roughly in my mini food processor).
  7. Pour into a greased 9 x 9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and tooth pick comes out dry when testing.
  8. Allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes, cut top into diamond shapes, pour syrup all over cake making sure it saturates cake evenly. Allow to sit for a few hours, cut and enjoy.
