1Preheat oven to 350 degrees with rack in the middle position. First, butter and flour a 9-by-3-inch spring-form pan.
2In a stand-up mixer, beat the butter and the sugar until they both become fluffy. Then beat in the eggs, one at a time, until they have fully incorporated. Then, pour in the vanilla extract.
3In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda and the salt. Then in a separate bowl, stir together the Greek Yogurt and the honey.
4Alternately, add half the flour mixture and all the yogurt mixture then the remaining flour mixture, folding nicely.
5Then transfer the batter to the prepared pan, smooth the top, and bake until the top is golden brown. Test by inserting a toothpick into the center of cake to see if it comes out clean, for about 35 to 40 minutes.
6Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer the cake to a wire rack to fully cool. Slice and serve with the orange slices and walnuts.
