NEW YEAR CAKE

(Vasilopita)


INGREDIENTS:


METHOD:

1. Prepare your cake tin by lightly greasing the base and sides with a small amount of butter. Put to one side for later.

2. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees / Gas mark 4

3. In a medium bowl, add the butter and sugar together and stir well.

4. Add the flour to the mixture and stir again.

5. Place the milk in a saucepan and heat gently. While you wait for the milk to heat up, add one egg at a time to the bowl and mix thoroughly.

6. Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder with the other ingredients and finish by pouring the milk in slowly before doing one last stir.

7. Pour all batter into the cake tin and place the almonds on top. If you are going to follow the tradition then wrap a coin in foil and insert it in the tin.

8. Place in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour - until golden brown and leave on a wire rack to cool before serving.

9. Dust with a small amount of icing sugar to finish.
