Maggie's Walnut Cake


120 grams of margarine
300 grams of sugar
600 grams of crumbled walnuts
extra walnuts to sprinkle cake on top
600 grams of dried bread
small shot glass of cognac
8 whole eggs Separate
3 teaspoons of baking powder
2 spoons of cinnamon ( not full)
1 teaspoon powdered vanilla ( on the tip of teaspoon)
2 teaspoons of grinded orange rind
1 cup of black raisins

440 grams of water
440 grams of sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 slice of rind


Mix walnuts with a little bit of sugar(use your hands for this) In a separate bowl mix the margarine until white, in mixture put in walnuts, cinnamon, vanilla, raisins . Then in another bowl mix egg yolks with the sugar and then slowly we pour in the cognac. This will be poured in the above mixture. In another bowl we beat the egg whites to meringue whip . We also pour this in the mixture interchanging with the egg whites until both are finished. We have a buttered pan ready and we pour the mixture inside our pan. Bake at medium heat for about an hour.

Just about when cake is almost done. You boil all the ingredients for the syrup together. When cake is ready, we slowly pour the hot syrup over the cake, sprinkle with walnuts, let rest for about 1 to 2 hours then serve.


This is a Greek traditional fall/winter recipe. It lasts me about three days especially when I use fresh walnuts !!!! Good luck!!! I would love feed back when you try it.

why do you not say how many cups of sugar, and cups of margarine and tsps and tablespoons. I don't know what the grams mean. Can you please convert to cups and spoons for the measurements instead of grams. Thanks.
