I didn’t have time to bake a cake, but I ate Portokalopita at the mall, which is why I looked for the recipe, because at some point I will reproduce it myself. It’s like baklava, it’s just as sweet, but instead of walnut and syrup pie pastry, we have phyllo with a yogurt cream and oranges, and, of course, syrup. :)))
Greeks say that they creatively recycle the scraps of phyllo pastry left over from making all kinds of pies. Very nice. 🙂
For a tray with 10 servings, put the phyllo pastry (400g) finely cut into the greased baking tray. On top we will pour a cream made of 5 eggs, 100g of sugar, the juice and peel of 2 oranges, 1 packet of vanilla sugar, 1 packet of baking powder, 280g of Greek yogurt and 180ml of olive oil. We make sure that the pastry is completely covered by the cream and decorate with slices from 1-2 oranges.
In the oven, 180 degrees, 45 minutes. When it’s ready, take it out and pour a syrup of 350ml water, 400g sugar, and the juice of an orange on top.
It is consumed cold, after a few hours. With a bitter coffee. 😀 And if you didn’t get diabetes, we’ll hear about other disasters in the coming days. 😛
And here’s another idea, a matcha tart, which didn’t taste bad at all. 🙂
