This is my favorite kind of dessert. Easy, complex, flavorful, easy, fresh, delicious, easy. Do you sense a theme with desserts that I like? I want something easy to make. It may surprise you, but people expect me to bring food to things. There are times when I really have it together and plan out what I am going to make and it is no big deal. And there are times when I realize 2 hours before I need to be somewhere that I need to bring something. Crap. When I made this Orange Ricotta Pound Cake, it was a “oh crap, I need to bring something” kind of day. I looked in my fridge, and saw that I had some ricotta that needed to be used, so I googled ricotta cake and this is what I made.
It is all that a cake should be. It is moist and flavorful, and really fresh tasting. I loved it. I had some berries leftover and I whipped some cream and it made this simple cake really elegant.
This recipe comes from the Food Network, it is a Giada recipe. I normally do not read the reviews but I did and I am grateful that I did. I was warned that this cake has a tendency to spill over in the oven. So I made a regular size loaf pan and a mini cake. The baker should get a treat right?
