Very Easy


- 1 1/2 cups cake flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta cheese, at room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
- 3 large egg, at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- zest of 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons Amaretto
- 1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl whisk the cake flour, baking powder and salt to combine.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, ricotta, and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Step 3

With the machine running, add the eggs one at a time, incorporating each before adding the next.

Step 4

Add the vanilla, lemon zest, and Amaretto and mix until combined. A little at a time, add the dry ingredients, beating just until incorporated.

Step 5

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick comes out clean and the cake is beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 45 to 50 minutes.

Step 6

Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes then turn out and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 7

Meanwhile, place the strawberries in a small bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar. Let sit until the juices have pooled around the strawberries.

Step 8

To serve, slice the cake and serve with a spoonful of strawberries and their juices over the top of the cake.
