My fiancee, who is a bit of a language freak confirms that it is Greek, but sadly doesn't know enough to translate.
One should use an 11x13 pan and cook at 375 degrees, whatever it is!
...and cook at 375 degrees.
Yes it is Greek. A recipe of a very common and delicious dessert familiar to all grown up in Greece. And yes, for us who have tasted and loved it, this brings oh, so many memories from home!
What a treasure!! I know so many people who would LOVE to find such mysteries like that.
I only know a little greek, and her handwriting and shorthand are a bit baffling to me, but you're looking at a recipe for Ravani:http://www.greekinternetmarket.com/recipes/ravani.phpI can make out her ingredients, but the main text of the recipe is beyond me. Anyway, it calls for:5 eggs1 1/3 cup(?) sugar1/2 cup water1 1/3 cup semolina flour2 lemons, the (peel? zest?) only2 tsp(?) vanilla1 cup flourat the end of the recipe, the sauce:2 cups sugarjuice of 1/2 lemon3 cups waterGood luck!
