The traditional durum semolina based Greek halva recipe is often referred to as “1:2:3:4″, as it calls for one unit oil, two semolina, three sugar and four water. So simple!

Karidopita (kah-ree-THOH-pee-tah) is a moist walnut cake that is flavoured with cinnamon and bathed in sweet syrup.

My version here is made with Olympian Self Raising Flour and is a little more pleasing to your waistline but just as delicious.
