Portokalopita (Greek Orange and Phyllo Cake)

5.0
1 Ratings
Portokalopita is different from traditional Greek dishes that call for phyllo dough, the sheets of phyllo do not get layered in the traditional way one would expect from Greek cooking, they get all crumbled & torn up into the pan. This unexpected application of the phyllo dough makes portokalopita one of the simplest Greek dessert recipes, which makes it perfect for those who may be intimidated by the thought of working with paper-thin phyllo dough.
