Honey Cakes (Melomakarona)

Ingredients:
800 g. oil
1 cup of sugar
1 glass of orange juice
2 teaspoons of bicarbonate soda
1 wine glass of cognac
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
About 2 kilos of flour
Walnuts (for the sprinkling)

Syrup:
750 g. of sugar
500 g. of water
300 g. of honey

Instructions:
Beat the oil with the sugar. Dilute the bicarbonate soda and the baking powder in the cognac and pour this mixture in the oil and the sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients (except for the flour) and mix them well. Pour the flour little by little (perhaps not all of it will be needed) and knead until the dough doesn’t get stuck on our hands. Shape the honey cakes, put them in an oiled baking pan and bake them in a medium temperature for half an hour. Prepare the syrup and let it cold. As soon as you remove the honey cakes from the oven, dip them in the syrup and put them in a platter. Sprinkle them with ground walnuts.
