Caramelised orange ricotta cake
A bit of colour to brighten up our weekend x
I have made lemon ricotta cake a couple of times before but this time I really wanted to change up the flavour and therefore made an orange ricotta cake. I didn’t fancy a plain ricotta sponge so I added some caramelized oranges slices to add extra fruitiness.
Looks like a very summery dessert but I thought as we seem to be having our last rays of an Indian summer here in the UK it would be perfect. I toned down the butter content as the ricotta really makes the cake seriously moist. I’m enjoying baking with fruit at the moment, this way I feel like I’m getting some of my 5 a day fruit portions lol!
Keep an eye out as more fruit make a special appearance in my recipes. I hope you enjoy this sweet and sour dessert!
125g softened butter
150g caster sugar
Zest of 2 oranges
