    A very moist walnut cake that everyone likes. I usually don't cut mine in triangles, but just serve pieces to my company.

      I was worried that the flavor of the syrup was too strong, but it was perfect. Great flavor and texture! Substituted plain Greek yogurt for low-fat. This was fantastic warm and cooled.

      This gets 5 stars from my dad. He just loved this cake and ate it all week while visiting us. I liked it too I'm just not big on sweet things. I thought the syrup was strong but I didn't make it for me so...Dad says 5 stars!

      I served this cake for dessert at a Greek-themed dinner party and it was a huge hit with everyone. It was very moist and flavorful. I filled the space between the two triangles with fresh peach and necterine slices garnished with a dollop of greek yoghurt and a strawberry. I also used low fat greek yoghert in the cake recipe. I will make this again!
