(Greek Orange Phyllo Cake)
“Portokalopita is a deliciously different cake, and a must-try for anyone who is afraid of phyllo. Why? Because here the phyllo is shredded to bits – the messier the better! The gorgeous orange and cinnamon syrup ensures this cake stays beautifully moist.”
2 cups white sugar
1 ½ cups water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 orange, halved

1 package phyllo dough
3 oranges
5 eggs
1 container Greek yogurt
¾ cup olive oil, divided
½ cup white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder

Combine 2 cups sugar, water, and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
Squeeze in orange juice and add juiced halves.
Bring to a boil and boil vigorously for 8 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool while you prepare the cake.
Preheat the oven to 175°C.
Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with some olive oil.
Remove phyllo sheets from the package.
Tear each sheet roughly into shreds and pile up in the baking pan.
Let shredded phyllo dry out a little while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
Cut 1 orange in half, and slice 1 half into very thin half-moons to garnish the cake.
Zest and juice the remaining 2 1/2 oranges.
Combine orange juice, orange zest, eggs, yogurt, olive oil, ½ cup sugar, and baking powder in a blender or food processor.
Blend together on high speed until frothy, about 2 minutes.
Pour orange and egg mixture over the shredded phyllo in the baking pan.
Stir everything together gently to ensure that the egg mixture is evenly distributed.
Garnish top of the cake with the orange slices.
Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden and the filling set, about 45 minutes.
Remove from the oven and immediately pour the cooled syrup over the hot cake.
Set aside for at least 1 hour, until most of the syrup has soaked in.
Slice into squares and serve.
Ensure that you get the wet yogurt wet mixture evenly distributed throughout the phyllo sheets; if you don’t, you may end up with some doughy spots throughout the cake. To make this easier to avoid, be sure to dry the shredded phyllo sufficiently before adding the wet mixture.
When pouring the syrup over the cake, ensure you pour cool syrup over the hot cake (not hot syrup over hot cake). You can use a ladle to slowly pour it over, letting it soak in between each addition

Ek maak Très Leche koek. Dis fantasties en ek kry baie komplimente. Beste na 2 of 3 dae. Sous is Ideal Melk en kondensmelk. Plaas in yskas en sny later. Haal maklik blokke uit. Sif kaneel oor en versier met room.
1 cup (5 oz/142 g) all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
5 large eggs, at room temperature, separated
1 cup (8 oz/225 g) sugar, divided
1/3 cup (2 ½ floz/75 ml) whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 oz can evaporated milk
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
¼ cup (2 floz/60 ml) whole milk

For the whipped topping:
1 ½ cups (12 floz/340 ml) heavy whipping cream
ground cinnamon, for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) then grease a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Separate the eggs yolk and whites into two separate bowls.
Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer whisk the egg yolks on high speed. Slowly stream in 3/4 cup sugar to the bowl with the egg yolks. Whip until thick and pale in color.
Continue whipping and add the 1/3 cup milk and vanilla.
Next, add in the dry ingredients and gently mix until just combined. Don’t over-mix as it can toughen the cake. Transfer mix to a clean bowl and wash out the mixing bowl.
Back on the stand mixer, fitted with a whisk, beat the egg whites on high speed until light and foamy. Gradually add the remaining ¼ cup of sugar as you mix and continue beating until stiff peaks.
Remove from the mixer and gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk batter until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven and set aside.
Combine the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and whole milk in a jug.
Once the cake has cooled slightly use a toothpick to poke holes all over the top of the cake. Slowly pour the milk mixture over the top of the cake, making sure to pour near the edges and all around. I do this in two stages until it’s all soaked up.
Refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour but preferably overnight to allow it to soak up the milk.
When ready to serve, whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks. Smooth the whipped cream over the top of the cake. Sprinkle cinnamon on top and enjoy!
This cake will keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

I bought the cream for the wipped topping, but did not use it as the cake is yummy without fancy trimmings. I only had one small problem. None of my baking pans are the right size. So the cake is quite high and the 3 milk sauce could not reach the middle. As I had some evaporated milk over and a half tin of caramel, I mixed it with some whole milk and pour a little over each slice. Better than good… thank you once again for all your help.
