Lemon and Ricotta Ring Cake

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.

Grease and line a Ring or Bundt tin

Method:

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!
