Karidopita (kah-ree-THOH-pee-tah) is a moist walnut cake that is flavoured with cinnamon and bathed in sweet syrup.  The traditional recipe calls for breadcrumbs, a whopping 250g of butter and quite a bit of sugar…Yes, It’s quite decadent, but as a lover of all things cinnamon it definitely has my stamp of approval! My version here is made with Olympian Self Raising Flour and is a little more pleasing to your waistline but just as delicious.
