Lemon Ricotta Cake Recipe

Lemon Ricotta Cake..One of my all time favourite cake..I could never get enough of lemon cakes. So here i am with another recipe of it. This time i added ricotta cheese in this and it turned out pretty damn delicious.

Check out my whooping 85 cake recipes in my website RIGHT HERE

The combination of lemon and ricotta works magic in this cake and creates a lovely soft and light texture in this cake..I really enjoy it so much. 

You can easily make this cake as orange cake, instead of lemon zest,add orange juice for lemon juice. 

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
