I'm ending this week's marathon on a sweet note with this Apple Ricotta Cake from Food52. We went apple picking couple of weeks back and I had quite a few apples left. I also had some ricotta cheese that needed to be used up in the fridge. So I looked for recipes with apples and ricotta in Food52 and found this delicious cake recipe which happens to be the 'Best recipe with Fresh Ricotta' contest winner.This recipe uses only 1 apple and doesn't really taste like an 'apple' cake. I'm not a big apple fan so that is totally fine with me, but if you are looking for an apple cake that tastes like an apple pie (or more apple'y'), then this is not for you.The addition of ricotta gives the cake almost a cheesecake like texture. It is airy and light. After reading the reviews, I reduced the sugar quantity from 1cup to ¾cup but kept everything else as is. This recipe has 3 eggs but I was making this for friends who eat eggs so I didn't bother with substituting the eggs with a vegetarian option. All in all this is a delicious cake that I'll be making often.
