Make a Good Luck Cake


It's a Greek tradition to serve Vasilopita (New Year's Cake) at midnight. This special cake is baked with a coin or charm hidden inside. The head of the household cuts the cake exactly at midnight. Whoever receives the piece with the coin will have good fortune throughout the year. So spend the day baking Vasilopita with your kids. At midnight, welcome in the New Year with a sweet treat and a bit of luck!
