I have been trying to recreate the ricotta cake from Papa's in Bondi Beach, Australia. Those were mini cakes but i do not have the proper containers, so made a large one in a springform pan. The taste is not Papa's and the ricotta was more in the middle of each cake. This was my first attempt and will keep trying. Was unsure of cook time as original recipe was for a 9x13 glass pan, and it didn't indicate how to check for doneness.
