Soft ricotta cake is a mouthwatering crumble perfect to serve as a dessert at the end of dinner or as a snack along with a cup of milk or tea.

The ricotta filling inside is irresistible-we are sure your guests will ask for seconds in front of this crumble so soft that it melts in the mouth.




For 8-9 inches cake pan


  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 7 tbsp of cold butter
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 egg


  • 2 + 3/4 cups of cow ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • cinnamon powder to taste



Start by putting the flour in a bowl with the sugar, egg and baking powder.

Last, we add the cold butter in pieces.

We work the ingredients with our fingers until the dough consists of large crumbs.

We seal tightly with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, we process the ricotta cheese with the eggs, sugar and a pinch of cinnamon until smooth and homogeneous.

In a 8-9 inches mold lined with baking paper, we distribute a layer of crumbled dough (about half) on the bottom, compacting it with the help of a spoon.

We then cover the base with the ricotta cream.

We complete with the rest of the crumbled dough, distributing it well with our fingers.

We bake in a preheated static oven at 350 F for 40 minutes.

Once cooled, we dust the cake with powdered sugar and serve.
