Baby Ricotta Cake

ricotta cake

This petite cake has become a favourite for birthdays and Sundays - today having been both.

Baked in a push pan I purchased at Lakeland in Scotland in February, this cake comes together with minimal effort as no electrical appliances are required (other than the oven). A scale, a whisk, two bowls, and a spatula are the only tools needed. On my recent travels I've even made this successfully without a whisk and spatula, as a spoon was all I had available.

Moist with ricotta and cream, flavourful with lemon zest infused sugar, this 6" cake is the perfect size for one evening's dessert with minimal leftover for the next day.
