Baker's Tips
  • To check if cakes are done or not. Check if it is wobbly in the middle. That’s the time you will take it out.
  • If mango pulp is not available then you can use passion fruit pulp without seeds.
Lemon Curd
  1. In a pan on medium heat add lemon juice, zest, sugar and egg, egg yolk. Keep stirring until it starts to thicken. Take off the heat and add butter. Cool it down in refrigerator.
Baker's Tips
  • If the curd forms a layer on the back of the spoon, it’s done. And I prefer to use wooden spoon.
  • Remember to keep heat low, otherwise egg white will start to crumble. And do not forget to stir continuously .

Final Touch
Cover the top of the cake with lemon curd, caramelized pine nuts and some chocolate topping :-)
Baker's Tips
  • I wanted to make this cake in the weekend and Ricotta cheese was vital. My husband searched in many stores over the weekend and everywhere it was out of stock. Then I decided to make Ricotta at home. It was my first time and the result was fabulous. And now onwords I will always make Ricotta at home :)
My cake turned out very creamy and better than I prepared with Ricotta from market.

Have fun …….. & Enjoy your Mango Ricotta Cheese Cake!!
