This ricotta cake is not to be confused with ricotta cheesecake, which has a creamy consistency. Here, the ricotta is mixed with flour, sugar, and yeast to make a true cake that rises in the oven and has a wonderful vanilla flavor imparted by vanilla-bean seeds. The cake is delicious on its own, dusted with confectioners' sugar, or coated with melted white chocolate, as here, with white chocolate shavings made by scraping a bar with a sharp paring knife.

Ingredients

  • 400 grams ricotta cheese
  • 400 grams flour
  • 400 grams sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 10 grams yeast
  • milk chocolate
  • white chocolate

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Add the cheese, flour, sugar, vanilla bean, and yeast in a bowl and mix until smooth.
  3. Pour the batter into a 25-centimeter round cake pan lined with parchment paper.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 50 minutes.
  5. Remove the foil and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes until completely cooked.
  6. Cover with melted chocolate and sprinkle with white chocolate flakes.

The cheesecake is not as creamy and smooth as other cheese cake recipes I have tried. This was not a bad thing, I was just a little surprised at the dry texture. I rather liked the flavor of it though and will likely make it again when I am craving something different.
