This is a wonderful cake that my friend Rebecca made and in her words "This cake is one of those wonderfully dense, solid, stick-to-your-ribs cake that leaves you satisfied. Like “I Ate Cake Today, and I Don’t Care What You Think” feeling."

Enjoy you will love it.

Ingredients

1
small container of part-skim ricotta cheese(about 1 cup)
1/2 c
water
1/2 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
lime zest
1 tsp
vanilla
1
egg
1 c
a/p flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
pinch of salt
FRUIT TOPPING
2 c
strawberries fresh or frozen
1/3 c
sugar
juice of 1/2 a lime

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Before you do anything else, make the syrup (boil the sugar, zest, and water) together till the sugar is completely dissolved-then let it cool.
2
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and beat together the ricotta cheese and syrup with the vanilla and sugar. BEAT IT. Then add the egg and beat it some more, till well incorporated. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet and then pour into a greased 8×8 or similar baking dish. Bake for 30-45 minutes (test it at 30 with a toothpick-it should come out clean). It’ll be golden when it’s done. Let it cool while you make the strawberry sauce.
3
To make the strawberry sauce all ya do is boil the strawberries, and sugar together with some lime juice. For about 5 minutes or so, really whenever you feel like it’s time. You will know.
4
Cool the berries and the cake and then pour the berries over top the cake. Enjoy!

I have this cake in the oven now, it has about 5 more minutes of baking. It looks really good and smells wonderful.
While mixing it up, I noticed the directions in #2 said to beat the syrup with the ricotta cheese, vanilla AND SUGAR. But I didn't see a separate ingredient for extra sugar - just the sugar in the syrup, and in the strawberry topping. But I added 1/2 cup of sugar at this stage, which would make a whole cup of sugar including that used in the syrup, and would be equal to the amount of flour used, which is sometimes a rule of thumb for cake.
It must have been correct, because the cake turned out great.
