There are many Italian cake recipes but this one has to be one of my favorites….
It is delicious, quick, easy and with the exception of ricotta cheese, you probably have all the ingredients in your fridge and pantry.
Thanks to Sophie Calloca for the recipe. It is brilliant.
Lemon Ricotta Ring
200 g caster sugar
4 tablespoons extra virgin Olive Oil
170 g Full fat Ricotta Cheese
1 Lemon Zest and juice
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence (optional)
70 g Ground Almond
200 g Self Raising Flour
Preheat Oven 170 degrees Celsius
Grease and line a Ring or Bundt tin
Combine eggs and sugar and whisk for 2-3 minutes
Add the Oil and Ricotta cheese (It must be full fat cheese, not the low fat option!- Sorry) and mix well.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients until thoroughly combined
Place in tin and cook for 35- 40 minutes till a skewer placed near the center comes out clean of mixture.
Cool in tin for 10 minutes
Dust with cinnamon sugar and Icing sugar and serve!
Something delicious to Ponder About!
