The melomakarono (Greek: μελομακάρονο, pronounced: meh-loh-mah-KAH-roh-noh, plural: μελομακάρονα, melomakarona) is an egg-shaped Greek dessert made mainly from flour, olive oil and honey.[1] Along with the kourabies it is a traditional dessert prepared primarily during the Christmas holiday season.
Typical ingredients of the melomakarono are flour or semolina, sugar, orange zest and/or fresh juice, cognac (or similar beverage), cinnamon and olive oil. During rolling they are often filled with ground walnuts. After baking they are immersed for a few seconds in hot syrup made of honey and sugar dissolved in water. Finally, they are decorated with ground, as well as bigger, pieces of walnut. Dark chocolate-covered melomakarona are also a more recent variation of the traditional recipe.
