The first time I tasted baked ricotta cakes was when I was living near the Gourmet Platter store in Corrimal, NSW. Once a week they had tastings of new products and I fell in love with the texture and flavour of their ricotta cakes with ham and capers.
Tonight I decided to make some for Philip and I since he treated me to a round of fresh ricotta. I felt like making something special to say thank you for all the nice things he does for me. I would not be as productive and successful without his support. He does the lion’s share of the cooking and cleaning whilst I work on my web design, social media and photography business which I am forever thankful for.
The recipe isn’t difficult and you’ll be surprised how good it tastes. If you spend the time whipping the egg whites you’ll find the texture similar to a souffle – light and fluffy. As Philip said, “Just close your eyes and enjoy.”
