Homage to Nina's Lemon Ricotta Cake

This cake, originally created by my friend the talent Nina Parker, looked so good I had to try it, after a couple of goes I made one I adore with a few additions and a couple of simplifications, here is my take on it.

Perfect summery citrus flavours with a light ricotta touch and a cage reminder of cheesecake.

Serves 10


  • 250g unsalted butter, softened
  • 100ml honey
  • 50g coconut sugar
  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 250g almond flour
  • 70g gluten-free / plain flour
  • (3 sprigs fresh thyme optional) 
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Zest of 8 lemons and the juice of 4
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (use extract if you don't have)
  • 350g ricotta cheese
  • Handful raspberries
  • unrefined icing sugar for dusting
  • Creme fraîche and fresh raspberries for serving

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees and line a 10 inch cake tin with baking parchment.
In a mixer beat butter, sugar and honey together until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in the egg yolks one at a time. In a separate bowl mix together the two flours and salt. Then slowly mix this in with the butter mix. Add the batter to a large bowl and clean mixer, or use a separate bowl to whisk whites.
Now whisk up egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

In a bowl break up ricotta and mix in the vanilla, thyme leaves, lemon juice and zest. Fold in the whites a third at a time to the egg yolk batter until all is combined. Then fold in the ricotta bowl, with the raspberries and gently pour into prepared cake tin. Place into the oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden and cracked on top.

Remove and place cake on a cooling rack and leave to set. Once at room temperature dust with icing sugar.

Serve in slices with a dollop of créme fraîche and some raspberries.
Lasts for up to 4 days covered.

Hello, my name is Rachel Frye and I want to give this testimony in respect of Dr. Odunga who made me win $2 Million Dollars in Lottery by matching the 5 numbers for me. I am happy to be out of financial debt and be able to help my family in these seasonal period of fun and cheer. I contacted Dr. Odunga through Whats-App (+2348167159012) when I told him to help me win the Mega Millions and He told me that it would be spiritually checked if I will win the Lottery. When he informed me that I will not be able to win the Jackpot but I will win huge amount in the lottery I was not completely sad but had great faith in him. I live in Freeland, Saginaw County, Michigan and I would say it was pretty hard to send him the money for the spell before he gave me the winning numbers to play. He sent me the numbers and I played. The next morning after the drawing, I matched the five white balls in the Aug. 4 drawing to win $1 million: 11-30-45-52-56. Thanks to the Megaplier X2, my prize was multiplied to $2 million. Thank You Dr Odunga for this wonderful experience with you. You too can contact Dr. Odunga at his Whats-App +2348167159012 or Email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
