Ingredients

  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 cups fresh berries or other fruit
  • Fresh whipped cream or ice cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch spring form pan with parchment paper. Lightly coat parchment paper with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk in sugar to combine.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, ricotta and vanilla until smooth. In three stages, slowly whisk into dry ingredients. Mixture will be thick and dense.

  5. Fold in 90% of fresh berries by hand. Pour mixture into prepared spring form pan. Top with remaining fresh berries.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until top is lightly browned and the center no longer giggles when jostled.
