Lemon ricotta cake. Today a nice cake for breakfast Saturday and Sunday. But also on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, because the scented ricotta cake (and frosted) lemon is maintained very well and can be kept a long time. The ricotta lemon cake is easy to prepare and will please everyone, young and old but if you have doubts you can watch VIDEO RECIPE STEP BY STEP on my YouTube channel.
This cake baking has no butter or oil, because it contains cottage cheese, that makes it soft but perish. The lemon flavor of the dough decided (You can also prepare it with oranges or tangerines if you prefer, or just with vanilla or chocolate chips) is reinforced by the frosting, lemon too, slightly bitter despite being made essentially of sugar. If you love sweets simple and soft baked for breakfast, have a look at all my RECIPES AND PLUMCAKE cakes.
You can simply top or decorate it like I did with colored sugar or sprinkles. The only advice I give is to mount long eggs with sugar, because the dough has puffed and airy, better is the sweet. Careful not to overcook, otherwise it will be dry and rather, If well cooked, It is very soft, soft and fragrant. If you opt not to top, increase the dose of the mixture to 300 grams. And if you love SWEET LEMON do not waste my wonderful TIRAMISU’ LEMON, creamy and fresh. Have a good day!

250 grams of Superfine caster sugar
300 grams of fresh ricotta di pecora
3 whole eggs

Before preparing the donut ricotta lemon, look carefully at my VIDEO RECIPE STEP BY STEP and preheat oven to 180 degrees static.
Mount with an electric mixer or in a food processor the eggs with the sugar, until mixture will be white and fluffy. Do not rush: with an electric mixer it takes at least 15 minutes. Add little by little ricotta and continue working the mixture with whips, then add the zest and lemon juice and salt.
Sift together the flour and baking powder, then add them to the mixture slowly, always fitting so as not to form lumps. You need to obtain a homogeneous mixture, thick and smooth, as you see in VIDEO RECIPE STEP BY STEP. If you look too thick, You can add one or two tablespoons of milk.
Grease and flour the bundt cake mold: You can use anything you like, plain or decorated. Pour the dough into it and level it with a spatula. Cook the ricotta lemon donut for 35 minutes or until the cake is golden and not, by inserting a toothpick, will not dry. The cake will have a puffy and golden appearance as seen in VIDEO RECIPE. Obviously more the mold is small and tall, more ricotta lemon donut should cook. Once cooked, unmold the cake and let it cool on a wire rack.
For the icing, dilute the icing sugar with lemon juice: place drip if you want a matte glaze almost and opaque, nice thick. If you prefer a lighter frosting, transpire that face the donut ricotta lemon, use a little more. Decorate the cake as desired with icing and sprinkle with sprinkles, If you want. And now enjoy your meal!
