Tried to make this lemon ricotta cake did not like the way it mixed. There was no moist batter. Added some milk that did not help. The batter was so dry I could not fold in the egg whites. I cooked it any way in my oven to see if baking would make it better. Was a big disappointment? Was something lift out of this recipe.
