Thermomix Ricotta and Limoncello Cake

The recipe for the Thermomixer cake with limoncello
Thermomix Ricotta and Limoncello Cake

For Mother’s Day, I wanted to prepare a simple and fragrant cake but with a surprise.

Indeed, from the first bite you can feel the freshness of the limoncello and the sweetness of the ricotta, creating thus an irresistible cake.

The Thermomix Ricotta and Limoncello Cake is made from a soft dough enriched by ricotta and the limoncello, the famous lemon liqueur. In addition to the classic ingredients, I also added a teaspoon of grated lemon zest to intensify the flavor.

I made the cake lactose-free by using lactose-free ricotta instead of the classic one, or you can alternatively use sheep or goat ricotta.

As with any dessert, it takes some care, such as using fresh and quality ingredients and making sure that the oven is at the right temperature, in order to cook the cake evenly, to check if it’s done I always insert a skewer in the center, which should come out clean.

In addition to the Thermomix Ricotta and Limoncello Cake, there are many other simple and tasty cakes on Ricette-Bimby:

My family really loves these seemingly simple cakes that then unleash a lot of flavors. My grandmother’s cakes were just like that, simple, very soft, and with an incredible taste.

Nothing left but to wish you a pleasant weekend and leave you with the recipe for the Thermomix Ricotta and Limoncello Cake.
