Made it yesterday. I did not have luck with it. The dough was very sticky, and the cake was not as big as I thought it would be. I put it in the oven, nonetheless, hoping it would miraculously rise and expand. It did not.
It did turn out tasty, but somewhat dry. I ended up cutting it into pieces and taking it into work. I let people know what I thought of it, and they seemed to like it.
There are other recipes online which use orange juice, one of which I tried last year and it was a great success. This year, after making this vasilopita, I tried a recipe which uses a bit of lemon juice. It turned out better.
