Fantastic recipe!I am greek living in Athens was looking for a new vassilopita recipe and tried this one...my husband said it is the best he ever had my children loved it it was consumed on the spot even after a rich new year's dinner! I topped it with our favorite creem cheese frosting and wrote on top of it 2007 as is the tradition using mini m m's.Should have taken a picture!
An Excellent rich dense cake. This is great for a hostess gift. I topped mine with sugared pecans and baked in a springform pan to enhance presentation. Also I extended the baking time by 15 minutes. Got great reviews from all who tried it. Definitley a keeper.
This receipe was good. Infact it tastes better the second day. I had no problem with the baking time that the receipe called for. I didn't put the quarter in. Also after I inverted the cake on the cake rack I inverted again to a cake plate so the nut sugar mixture was showing on top. What a nice presentation.
My teacher is Greek and brought this in to celebrate the new year. My friend got the quarter but I still ate the cake! It was really good and apparently kid friendly. I might have to make this for my family!
Made this potential family annual tradition in a springform pan which eliminated the tricky inversion process. Also substituted a whole almond for the lucky quarter (which would have required pre-santitizing).
I served this for our New Year's brunch. It looked pretty and we all really enjoyed it. My 10 inch pans were on loan so I baked it in a tube pan for a total of 50 minutes. If you are expecting a sweet fluffy dessert cake don't make this however if you appreciate a firm not-too-sweet European cake this recipe is for you. My Greek husband says you need to cut a piece for Saint Basil!
Made this cake for New Year's gifts for neighbors and it was fantastic! I used two 6" round pans and it looked just beautiful. Bake time was still about the same although I did the sugar/almonds at about 18 minutes instead of 20 so they would stick better. Thought sliced almonds looked prettier than slivered as the recipe listed. Enjoy!
