Description

Ricotta cheese imparts much moistness and subtle flavor to these mini loaf cakes that are made lofty thanks to the beaten egg whites that are folded into the batter. Orange flower water adds delicate fragrance; look for it at baking supply shops and gourmet grocers. You can use the grated zest of one orange if you can't find the flower water, but the results won't be quite the same. The cakes are coated with melted chocolate and sprinkled with sugar or sprinkles after baking.
