Orange Cake Recipe for Portokalopita from Greece

Chris from camper_culinaric has once again an ingenious cake recipe for the Omnia oven. You can do this cake well with that bake in the mobile home. Chris was traveling around Greece for a few weeks this summer. From there he brought an orange cake recipe from Greece. This delicacy is called Portokalopita. It is made from sweet oranges. The cake is very popular in Greece. There it is mainly eaten as a dessert with coffee. Among Greek cake specialties, it belongs to the same type of cake as baklava. This type of cake is called in Greece siropiasta. Typically, these cakes are soaked in syrup. The cake is best eaten the next day. Until then, the orange syrup will soak into the cake batter. This gives the orange cake recipe Portokalopita its intense taste.
