formatting by NOTES : This recipe is a big hit at
the Taverna Anna Restaurant in North Filotheh, a suburb of Athens. If
you like pecans, you'll enjoy this cake. Bobbie's notes: I found this
a bit dry. I served it with peach butter. Try cutting cooking time by
10 minutes. Test for doneness. Recipe by: Opaa! Greek Cooking, Detroit
