Pour the batter into a baking pan that is 10 x 14 inches, and 2 1/2 inches deep. Bake the cake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove the cake and let it sit for 2 hours. In a medium saucepan place the 3/4 cup of sugar, water, orange peel, lemon peel, and cinnamon stick. Bring the ingredients to a boil and then simmer them for 5 minutes. Add the honey and bring the mixture to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add the lemon juice. Stir the ingredients together and let the syrup cool. Remove the orange and lemon peels, and the cinnamon stick. Spread the syrup over the cake. Sprinkle on the 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts and the ground cinnamon. Source: Papadakis Taverna - San Pedro, California
