Tahini cake (Tahinopita)
Hello guys, now it's Easter holidays and we are getting ready for Easter day!Forty days before Easter, as a tradition, Greek Orthodox Christians have nisteia, we don't eat meat, dairy or anything that comes from animals. On Wednesday and Friday we don't eat oil also. But here's a dessert that we make during this time and it doesn't contain oil, butter or eggs! :) and it's really easy!
300 gr Tahini (Tahini is a paste made from ground, hulled sesame seeds)
1 glass warm water
1 glass orange juice
2 glasses of sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves (powder)
1 handful raisins
1 handful walnuts
500 gr all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven in 180 C. Put all ingredients in a big bowl and mix well with a big spoon.Then place the dough in a big non-stick baking pan.
Bake the dessert until the surface is brown, 40 minutes more or less. After the baking, leave the dessert for 2 hours. Then cut into pieces and decorate with some sugar powder.
It will look like this:
Happy Easter everyone!! :)
Sounds really good, except the part about the non-stick cookware. :eek: definitely don't do this with birdies in the house!!!
Umm..I am sorry,I didn't understand that.
Mmm those look like brownies and very tasty! Thanks for sharing the recipe and Happy Easter to you, Princess.:hug:
