Traditional double baked paximadia with orange juice is a must, alongside with a cup of coffee in Greece.

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup cognac (usually used 5star Metaxa Brandy)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 900 gr flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 t carnation powder
  • 1/2 t grated nutmeg
  • Combine olive oil with caster sugar. Add orange juice and cognac.
    In a separate bowl put vanilla, carnation powder, cinnamon, grated nutmeg.
    Stir liquid with dry mixture until the dough holds.
    Knead well by adding more flour as needed. Make a smooth and soft dough.
    Place the dough onto a greased oven tray and flatten the dough slightly with your hands about 4 cm thick.
    Divide the dough diagonally into four parts and place them apart to get 4 logs.
    Then crosscut each diagonal dough 1 cm distance, as seen below.
    Bake in a pre-heated oven 180°C for about 15 minutes.
    Remove the tray from oven and separate the slices and lay them again to the oven tray.
    Bake again at 170°C for another 20 minutes until dry and golden crunch.
