This cake smells absolutely delicious as it bakes. YUMMO!!
You can substitute the lemon and orange zest with 60 grams of candied peel
Add in cranberries or glace cherries for some more colour and flavour
You can substitute the ricotta for cottage cheese or yoghurt making this a versatile cake depending on the ingredients you have at hand.
For a scrumptious dessert you can serve a slice with icecream or with hot chocolate or vanilla custard.
This cake freezes well!!
This cake tastes great the first day and improves over subsequent days - it will remain moist and tasty.
The taste and smell takes me back to the pasticcerias in Italy. Serve warm or cold.
