Lemon Ricotta Cake is a super moist cake that is perfect served with fresh strawberries.
One thing you can find lots of in Italy is lemons and my recipe for Lemon Ricotta Cake takes me back to my trip to the Amalfi Coast and the tons of lemons the size of pineapples, I am not kidding, they were that big!
How was everyone’s weekend? We had a dinner party on Friday night and had some friends over. My husband, Mr. B broke out his smoker for the year and he smoked a pork butt and as always, it was very delicious. He has mastered smoking a pork butt.
Along with the smoked pork I served a roasted cauliflower salad, baked beans, and paprika garlic corn. I will feature the salad and baked beans in the next week or so, they are new recipes. The Paprika Garlic Corn I featured not so long ago and let me tell you, it has such a great flavor.
I also made a Raspberry Sauce to use in Mimosa’s and as a topping for the ice cream we had for dessert. To go with the Raspberry Sauce I made a Cinnamon Fudge Sauce to serve with the ice cream. Again, I will feature those recipe’s at a later date.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, I will feature some recipes this week that would be great for a Mother’s Day Brunch or as a special dessert for your Mom. First up, Lemon Ricotta Cake. Ricotta cheese helps to make this cake extra moist and the lemon zest gives the cake an extra zip of lemon which I love. I love citrus flavored desserts.
