Greek Sweet Orange Pie (Portokalopita)

Print Friendly and PDF

A delicious, refreshing pie for the hot summer months! It can also be served warm, but I much prefer it cold. It can also be served with ice cream. Mmmm!

1 packet filo pastry (12 sheets)
250g Greek strained yoghurt
4 eggs
2 tablespoons baking powder
250 ml extra virgin olive oil

For the syrup
600 ml water
250g sugar
Grated rind from 2 oranges

Leave the sheets of filo pastry out, separated and uncovered, to dry for a few hours.

Crumble the sheets of filo.

Put the olive oil and eggs in a mixing bowl and whisk well with a metal whisker.

Add the yoghurt and baking powder and continue whisking until you have a smooth cream.

Add the crumbled filo pastry and mix in well with your hands.

Put in an oven dish and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes until it turns a golden colour.

In the meantime, prepare the syrup – boil the syrup ingredients in a pan for 5 minutes.

After removing the pie, once it is cold, cut into portions and spread the warm syrup on top.

Eat and Enjoy!
