Torta Di Ricotta

I`ve got to admit that I had doubts when I made this cake. When thinking of Ricotta, you usually imagine a flavorless cheese with a not-so-rich texture. This cake surly proved me wrong. Though this in not the creamiest cheesecake, it is certainly a very good one. This cake is quite dense, and has the most delicious combination of the citrus taste alongside with the crust and the cheese.

Another good thing in this cake is that it is fairly simple to make, compared with other cheesecakes. Here, you just have to make the crust, and then make the batter (and the only thing that is required is a stand mixer). In this one, you don’t need to whip egg whites, or to use all sort of tricks that the cake wont fall.

Oh, something about the citrus. If, like me, you are not the biggest fans of oranges, I suggest you put a zest from one orange rather than two as written in the recipe. This will give a slight taste of orange, which is perfect to my taste.
