  • 1 1/2 c Sugar
  • 2 tb Brandy (or slightly more)
  • 1 ts Baking soda

*[NOTE: Original recipe calls for "1-1/2 glasses of oil and 1-1/2 glasses
of orange juice". No mention of what size glass, as is typical of Greek

Combine the oil, the orange juice and sugar. Dissolve the soda with the
brandy and add it to the mixture also; add the cinnamon and the ground
cloves. Then very gradually add the flour, stirring constantly. Finally,
combine the walnuts and the raisins with the mixture. Coat a medium-sized
baking tin to spread the mixture evenly. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and
bake for 40-50 minutes. Cut to serve into oblong pieces.
