Ricotta cake

Last weekend I wanted something.... something sweet, but not that sweet, something delicious but not difficult to make, something with a rich taste but not fancy.
And I was searching for this something in 3-4 recipe books that I had at hand. My eyes stopped on a recipe that was called "Gâteau à la ricotta".... hmmm a kind of thicker cheese cake.... this sounds good doesn't it? Simple? Yeeees, more simple than putting all the ingredients in the mixing bowl cannot be. So, it was the cake of my thoughts and here it is its recipe.

  • 500g ricotta
  • the juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g sugar
  • 360g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  1. Mix all ingredients, following the order, with a standing mixer.
  2. Butter the cake pan to avoid sticking (or use silicone one or simply put baking sheet on the bottom of the pan.
  3. Pour the composition in the pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven  for 45 minutes.
