German Lebkuchen married with Greek Karidopita (Καρυδόπιτα)

Ηι Dolls!

What happens if you marry the German Lebkuchen (Leb-koo-chen) with Greek Karidopita (Ka-ree-doh-pita)??? I don't know how you can call the result,but it is yummy! The juicy,aromatic lebkuchen which oozes Christmas spirit and the walnuts and fluffiness of the Karidopita.

You need:

250 gr sugar
5 eggs
300-400 gr honey
2 tablespoons black molasses or maple syrup
200 gr finely ground walnuts
150 gr coarsely chopped walnuts
20 gr cocoa powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (powder)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (powder)
1/2 teaspoon ground clove
500 gr flour
120 gr butter
1,5 teaspoon baking powder
a dash of salt
a dash of pepper
some orange zest or orange blossom extract (optional)
and some milk or other liquid

Decoration: Caster sugar,sprinkles,chocolate (anything possible)

Beat the eggs,sugar,butter,honey,molasses and the spices with an electrical mixer until smooth and foamy (approx 5 min).Fold in the flour,baking powder and the walnuts.If the dough is too stiff,add some milk and mix well.
Let the dough rest in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Line a large baking tray with non stick paper and spread the dough.Bake for 12-20 min on medium high heat (175* Celsius).Make the tooth pick test to be sure the cake is done in the middle.

Let the cake cool and cut it into little squares.Decorate however you wish :)

Huggies and a happy,safe and healthy holiday season!
