Ouzo Pie

This delicious pie is similar to a Greek biscuit cake, but includes additionally cloves, cinnamon and ouzo, that made it incredibly fragrant and unique, especially for ouzo lovers.


For syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 glass of water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 shot glass of ouzo

For dough:

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups flour (Farina)
  • 1 jar of yogurt 250 g
  • 1/2 cup ouzo
  • some aniseed
  • 5 eggs


  • You need to start with syrup. Mix sugar with water in a saucepan. Add a stick of cinnamon and cloves. Bring the mixture to a boil over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove the pan from the heat, pour in it ouzo and cool.
  • Prepare three bowls. In the first put egg yolks and 1 cup sugar. Beat until yolks are white.
  • In a second bowl, beat the egg whites with a few drops of lemon until they became steady peaks.
  • In the third, add olive oil and sugar residue. Beat it for five minutes. Add yogurt, ouzo and aniseed, continuing to beat. Then add a little flour and whipped egg whites. Gently knead in smooth, circular motions.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Moisten with cooking spray the baking dish or grease it with oil. Bake the pie for an hour at a temperature of 180 degrees. It is better to cover it with aluminum foil.

Cool the pie for five minutes and then pour the syrup on it. Let your pie soak for at least thirty minutes before serving.

Enjoy your meal!
