DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat combine the water, sugar, honey and strips of orange zest. Bring to a boil and cook for about 15 minutes. Cover the saucepan and set aside to cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F Lightly oil an 8x11 baking dish.
  • Unfold the phyllo dough and tear it into large pieces. Set aside, uncovered, while preparing the rest of the pie.
  • In a large bowl lightly whisk the eggs. Add the oil, sugar, vanilla, orange zest, yogurt and baking powder and whisk well.
  • Pour the mixture into the baking dish then add the torn pieces of phyllo, pushing some pieces down slightly to coat.
  • Bake the pie until set and golden on top, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and score lightly into pieces with a sharp knife. Pour the cooled syrup over the top. Let cool it completely before serving.
  • Serving suggestion: place a piece of portokalopita on a plate and sprinkle with diced candied walnut pieces.
