Honey Cakes (Finikia)

Ingredients:
2 glasses of corn oil
1 glass of olive oil
1 glass of orange juice
1 glass of sugar
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate soda
Cinnamon
Lemon peels
Flour (as much as it is necessary)
Syrup: 5 tea cup of sugar
½ cup of honey
3 cups of water
For the garnishing: ground walnuts and cloves.

Instructions:
Beat the sugar with the corn oil and the olive oil. Dilute the bicarbonate soda in the water. Add the rest of the ingredients and the flour, so that the dough is smooth enough. Shape the dough in oblong sticks and cut them sideways by using a knife. Bake them in 180 degrees for about half an hour. Soak them in the hot syrup. Place them in a platter, place a clove in the middle of each honey cake and finally sprinkle them with some walnuts.

The Prayer of Saint Philaret for Beekeeping and Honeybees

As you have blessed and multiplied the bees of your righteous Saint Philaret, bless also these bees of your servant (name) and multiply and strengthen them and make them thousands and myriads, and pour them out of the dynasty of the devil and all the schemes of enemies and deadly winds and infectious disease. Protect them through your Holy Angels from every disease, every envy and temptation of medicine and charm, by the coming action of the devil, persecutors of them.
