Revani (greek Honey Cake)

Revani (greek Honey Cake)


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup farina (regular Cream of Wheat cereal)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 thinly sliced lemon, peel and all (remove seeds)
  • 1 stick cinnamon


Melt butter and mix in sugar. Beat eggs and add to sugar and butter mixture. Stir in vanilla. Mix together farina, flour, and baking powder; add to sugar mixture and stir well. Pour into greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake at 350 approximately 45 minutes, until golden brown. While Revani is baking, prepare syrup by combining ingredients and boiling for 10 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick. Remove Revani from oven and cut into diamond shapes. Make diamonds by making diagonal cuts first (about 1 inch apart), then straight-across cuts. Pour syrup over cake while both are hot. Add syrup in stages -- it will soak in! Cool before serving.
