Ricotta Cake - Mare749 - 03-16-2007

Thanks to Vicci, I remembered this cake that I used to make all the time and haven't made lately. It's nice and moist, not too sweet, and tastes really good chilled. I always sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

I have a feeling we're all going to be in trouble this Easter....decisions, decisions.

MaryAnn, I saw this after I asked for the recipe. THANKS for posting! I'll maybe add this to our Easter dessert buffet. Who need to eat more turkey? I'm going to eat an all-dessert Easter dinner!

Here you go Vicci, I bumped it back up to the top. Enjoy!

vicci, life's dessert first!

Gosh this sounds good. I have company from MD coming down for a golf tournament and will put this on my 'dessert' list. Wow, that's easy.

Have you ever frozen it?

Re: Ricotta Cake - Mare749 - 03-19-2007

No, it doesn't seem to last long enough to freeze. I think I would be concerned about it becoming soggy or watery when it thaws, but I could be all wrong about that.

Hope you enjoy it.

I try to make casseroles and desserts (to freeze) ahead of their arrival, otherwise I get too tired and don't enjoy the company.

Unfortunately, it sounds like Mr HB and I will have to eat this before they arrive.
