Aghios Fanourios or Saint Fanourios is a byzantine saint who is believed to have lived around the 4th century. It is a Greek Orthodox custom to bake a cake in his honour on August 27th, cut it in small pieces and to share iit with the rest of the church congregation who, in turn, will eat it and say "May God forgive Agios Fanourios' Mother". It is a delicious cake with no eggs or butter. This recipe has been in my family for decades. Hope you like it !
