Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

6 large eggs, room temperature
3 cups whole milk ricotta cheese.
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon orange liqueur
2 cups milk
1 cup water
3/4 cup farina, cooked
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup candied citron, finely chopped


Directions

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Butter a 9 x 3-inch springform pan. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until foamy. Beat in the ricotta, sugar, orange and lemon zest, and the liqueur. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk and water, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add the farina in a fine stream, stirring constantly. Stir in the salt and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes, or until thick and creamy. Stir the cooked farina into the ricotta


mixture, then stir in the citron. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until the top of the cake is golden and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.


To serve, run a thin-bladed knife around the outside edge of the cake. Remove the springform sides, and serve the pudding/cake off the base. Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled. Store in the refrigerator.
