J Belle, Opa. Holidays in our family are a big deal. Our Greek traditions play a large role in each holiday. I have so many wonderful memories growing up with my “Big Fat Greek Family” and all our special traditions. During the holiday.
Greek New Year's Day Cake - Made this today for the first time, and it definitely requires a 12 inch round cake pan! A has overflowed, but the cake batter was so delightful that I'm going to salvage the cake that's left and hope for the best!
Vassilopitta (or Vasilopita) is a Greek New Year's Day cake that contains a hidden coin. It is cut on the first day of the year to bless the house and bring good luck in the new year, with extra fortune going to the receiver of the hidden coin.
