Soft Almond, Ricotta Cake

Soft Almond and Ricotta Cake

This Cake, made with Almonds, ricotta, and a few drops of dark chocolate, is a fast and easy dessert. It is especially loved by children as a snack or for breakfast with a nice glass of milk to start the day.

Each dessert's prerogative is to be loved at first bite, and this cake, rest assured, will give you just that. I managed to find a perfect balance between the intense flavor of the almonds and the delicacy of the ricotta… with no flour, Gluten-Free!!!

Soft Almond and Ricotta Cake

This dessert is made with cow’s milk ricotta and almonds, very finely chopped to obtain a flour texture. I chopped the almonds with the skin to give them a bit of a crunch, but overall, the cake is very soft and moist because of the ricotta.
