We love it with:
FRIULI RICOTTA CAKE
Pre-heat oven to 180C (convention)/160C (fan-forced/convection).
Grease and line a 20cm round springform cake tin with baking paper.
Cream the butter and sugar together in a stand mixer (or with a wooden spoon). Add both eggs, one egg at a time and beat until pale and fluffy.
Add the ricotta, vanilla, salt, lemon zest, lemon juice and flour. Mix gently with a wooden spoon until just combined and flour is completely incorporated. Stir in the apple and a tablespoon or two of milk/soy milk if you feel the batter is very hard and not easy to mix. (I used about 2 tablespoons).
Spoon into the prepared cake tin. Scatter pine nuts on top. Bake in the pre-heated oven for approximately 40-45 minutes until golden, risen and pulling away from the edge of the tin. Turn off the oven. Allow to rest in the oven for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool completely. Lift out with the baking paper and place it on a cake serving plate. Dust with icing sugar. Cut and serve.
