Ricotta Cake

Ricotta cake and Rice pies are what I think of when I think of Easter deserts.

Here is a Ricotta Bundt cake.

Originally This recipe comes from a neighbor of my parents at their house in Florida.

I don't like using Box things.. So I am using a substitute for Box Cake mixes..

2 1/2 Cups All-purpose Flour (I use unbleached king arthur flour)
1/2 cup sugar (or substitute)
1 TBSP Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 stick of butter softened, and cubed
6 egg whites
1 TBSP Vanilla Extract
1 1/4 cup Milk, room temperature.

So I put this together by using my kitchen aide mixer and mixing the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together, then adding the butter.  Beat the egg whites and vanilla in a small bowl. and pour into the mixing bowl slowly, stir to combine that.  Slowly add the milk. and do not over work the batter.

Then I poured that into a greased and floured bundt pan and set it aside.

2 lbs Ricotta Cheese
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp lemon extract

Cleaned out my mixer bowl, and added 2 lbs of Ricotta Cheese and the 3 eggs; mixed that well.
Added the sugar (which was half of what the original recipe called for) {I tend to not like super sweet junk} and added the lemon extract and mixed that until it was creamy and smooth.

Poured it into the bundt pan on top of the cake batter and baked at 350 for 1 hour.
