Milopita - Greek Apple and Olive Oil Cake

4.5
2 ratings
Milopita is scented with cinnamon, clove & cardamom and chock full of apples for a cake that is quintessentially fall. It is difficult to resist the urge to eat a slice while it is still warm from the oven, but if you can stand to wait, the cake just gets better and better.

Author's Notes

When it comes to the spices, you can adjust them based on your personal preference. Greek baked goods tend to be pretty generously spiced, so feel free to take the liberty of leaving out the clove and cardamom if you prefer your desserts less spiced.
