Walnut cake (Karythopita) Litsa!

Walnut karythopita by Litsa!

 Karythopita is a traditional Greek dessert. The original version is heavy for me and I always have a problem with baking soda in my baking. I found the cake was permeated with the strong scent of the baking soda and that was not to my liking.

I was looking for a fresh, light version of Karythopita, and I am so happy I found the perfect one.

Mr. Parliaros a very famous Greek pastry chef created a Karythopita that is perfect, light and moist.

The traditional version needs syrup to become moist, Mr. Parliaros version is moist on its own…

I tried his recipe and it’s a keeper, with just a few additions to make my sweet tooth happy and I love it.

My contribution was 2 tbsp Nutella because I think nuts and more chocolate are divine together also I poked some holes on the cake so the chocolate can go all the way in… Wow…
