Chesse cake receipe
For the cake:
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1 cups sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 cups flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
For the filling:
1 1/2 pounds or 3 cups whole milk ricotta
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup chopped moist candied fruit, optional
For the syrup:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons orange liqueur or rum
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a saucepan, bring the milk and butter to a boil. Meanwhile, with a
whip attachment beat the eggs 5 to 7 minutes until light and very
fluffy. Add the sugar and vanilla and mix well, then gradually add the
flour. Drizzle in the hot milk, then add baking powder. Pour it into a
greased 9-inch cake pan with parchment paper lining the bottom. Bake for
30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack then use a blunt
knife to go around the edge of the pan to loosen it. Turn it out onto a
cutting board and carefully slice it in half horizontally.
To make the filling: Place the ricotta and sugar in a food processor and
pulse to blend and make it smooth. Fold in candied fruit, if you are
using it. Chill until ready to use.
To make the syrup: In a small saucepan boil the water and sugar
together. Let cool then add the orange liqueur.
To assemble the cassata: Brush the first layer of cake with half the
syrup. Spread the cake layer with ricotta filling. Brush the second
layer of cake with the remaining syrup and flip it onto the ricotta
filling. Press down lightly to secure it. Cover it with plastic wrap and
chill at least 2 hours or overnight.
To frost the cake: Frost with cream cheese frosting and drizzle with
chocolate syrup or melted chocolate. If you need a cream cheese frosting
let me know.
