Fanouropita (Greek Spiced Raisin Cake)
55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
14 ingredients
12-15 servings
Aghios Fanourios (Saint Fanourios) is the saint of revelation - that is why he is often depicted carrying a candle. Also, he had a sinful mom. In Greece, we bake this delicious raisin cake for his saint's day and offer it to guests. It is traditional to say 'God forgive Saint Fanourios' mom' before eating it (what DID this woman do?). I'm sure my kids will create a similar cake for me (it will contain chocolate, I'm sure) so that people can ask for me to be forgiven of my sins. ;-) BTW, there are no eggs in this cake, and no butter, making it suitable for the Lenten fast.
