Is’ the ricotta cake with mandarin, a sweet simple and good, intense aroma of citrus: the ricotta cake with mandarin has no butter or oil in the dough but it is soft and fragrant with ricotta. I suggest you use a ricotta, softer and more flavorful than vaccinates, but if you prefer the latter do as you like, I'll close one eye. Inside there is so much citrus peel, that gives color and especially perfume, and there is also the juice of mandarins, slightly pungent. The mandarins are in the prime of their season, so I suggest you also try one of my RECIPES WITH MANDARIN: Spoon desserts, cakes, frozen desserts and creams.

Cheesecake mandarin

The ricotta cake with mandarin is a perfect dessert for breakfast and easy to do: before starting preparation, Preheat the oven to 180 degrees static.

Break the eggs into a large bowl. Add the granulated sugar and beat with an electric mixer until the mixture is white, frothy and tripled d volume: do not rush because this is the most important part of the recipe, it will take at least 10 minutes,

Sift the ricotta until it is reduced in cream and add it to the egg and sugar, mixing at low speed with whips. Add zest of citrus, tangerine juice, salt and finally, floor plan, the sifted flour with the baking powder. When the ingredients and all the flour will be incorporated, you'll have the mixture is smooth, No clumps, not too thick nor too thin.

If instead you decide to make muffins with the dough for the ricotta cake with mandarin (they are stunning, very puffy fluffy), then consider the first 15-20 minutes.

When the mandarin cheesecake is cooked (worth testing toothpicks: inserted in the center of the cake they should come out dry), turn them and let it cool on a wire rack.

Remember that if you add too much juice, the frosting will be too runny and, When rapprenderà, It will not be covering. Spread the icing on the cake with ricotta and tangerine and decorated the cake with slices of tangerine and some green leaf (Mint, Thyme, Marjoram). Bon appétit!
