    What's Cooking?'s Note:

    This is a beautifully rich gluten-free cake that unlike many GF cakes will stay moist for days. It's based on a cake from the blog Lucullian Delights. The delicate tastes of almond and lemon compliment each other in a really wonderful way. This would taste great with fresh fruit. I prefer the Almond Meal/Flour from Bob's Red Mill, which can be bought at most health food stores or online. Make sure the gluten-free flour mix you use contains xanthan or guar gum! Pamela's works best.

      I never cook and attempted this recipe all by myself for office party treats. We had a gorgeous carrot cake, almond cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and a decadence cake (all by proficient bakers) but my little lemon ricotta was the star of the show. Super easy and super delicious.
