Karithopita Spiced Walnut Cake

6 eggs
2 1/2 c bisquick
1/2 ts cinnamon
1 ts salt
1/2 ts ground cloves
3/4 ts baking powder
2 c sugar
2 1/2 c chopped walnuts
1 1/2 c milk
1 1/2 c vegetable oil
3/4 c sugar
1/2 c water
2" strip orange peel
2" strip lemon peel
1/2 cinnamon stick
1/4 c honey
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 c walnuts
1 ts ground cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl place the eggs, Bisquick, 1/2 teaspoon
cinnamon, salt, cloves, baking powder, the 2 cups of sugar, the 2
1/2 cups of chopped walnuts, milk, and oil. Blend them together
with an electric mixer for 5 minutes.

Turn the mixer on high and beat the batter for 15 seconds.

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Pour the batter into a baking pan that
is 10 x 14 inches, and 2 1/2 inches deep. Bake the cake for 45
minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove
the cake and let it sit for 2 hours.

In a medium saucepan place the 3/4 cup of sugar, water, orange
peel, lemon peel, and cinnamon stick. Bring the ingredients to a
boil and then simmer them for 5 minutes.

Add the honey and bring the mixture to a boil. Remove the pan from
the heat and add the lemon juice. Stir the ingredients together
and let the syrup cool. Remove the orange and lemon peels, and
the cinnamon stick.

Spread the syrup over the cake. Sprinkle on the 1/4 cup of chopped
walnuts and the ground cinnamon.
