If you’re looking for a delicious, super easy and extremely aromatic Greek dessert, look no further than portokalopita, also known as Greek orange phyllo cake. This portokalopita recipe is bonkers good!
There is a thing about Greek summer that one cannot easily describe, especially it they haven’t experienced it themselves. It’s much more than a stop from daily routine, while it certainly entails so much more than laying on some Greek island sandy beach from dusk till dawn. A great deal is about food (you knew I was going to say that, right?!)
I guess I let myself get too excited with homespun cooking, delicious Greek mama food, feasts with family, fishing with friends and eating all these glorious meals; as a result, this blog post probably lost its way. Nevertheless, now that summer vacation is over, I had this idea of sharing one of my absolutely favorite Greek desserts. Portokalopita!
Portokalopita is a Greek orange phyllo cake and mega hit during the summer when you serve it with a scoop of ice cream. It’s crispy, syrupy, orange-y, and finger-licking good. Consequently, this portokalopita recipe has density you can’t beat. Deep-golden crust on top, custardy, with a thick texture this sweet citrusy concoction is bonkers good. Seriously guys, you need to try this asap.
Last but not least, let me thank the lovely folks at Pappas Post for sharing this recipe the previous days. Greg, you are the best!
