💡Tips

1. Achieve the Perfect Texture

To create a light and fluffy cake texture, it’s important to mix the ricotta cheese and butter until they are well combined. Use a stand mixer or a hand mixer to achieve a smooth, homogeneous mixture.

When adding the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, fold them in gently with a spatula but make sure everything is very well combined – it should take a few minutes.

2. Refrigeration and Serving Tips

Refrigerating the cake overnight is important for allowing the flavors to meld and the structure to firm up. Place the wrapped cake on a flat surface in your refrigerator to avoid any shifting.

Before serving, let the cake sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes to make slicing easier. Use a sharp knife for clean slices, and wipe the knife between cuts to maintain neat edges.
