St. Fanourios Cake (Fanouropita)

  • 1 cup light olive oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbs. baking powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup white sweet wine
  • 1 tbs. grated lemon peel
  • 1 tbs. grated orange peel
  • 1 cup raisins tossed in flour, optional sesame seeds

Oil and flour a baking pan of your choice. The usual is a sheet cake pan but we used a bundt pan instead. Sprinkle the sesame seeds onto the oil instead of using flour - it makes a beautiful cake when it's turned out of the pan.

Add all the ingredients into a large mixer bowl and beat well. Pour into your pan and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for about an hour for a bundt form. Use a toothpick to check if it's done with other cake forms as it may take less baking time.

That's it. You have a wonderful cake that is light and delicious

Yield: 36 slices.
