    Tonkcats's Note:

    Ricotta cheesecake has a delicate texture and many times it is best to serve the cake from the baking pan. Make sure the cake is well chilled before serving it either at room temperature or slightly chilled. Slice into even wedges and either sprinkle it with a dash of liqueur or serve it with fresh fruit.

      Where to begin? First the cheesecake overflowed onto the bottom of my oven. Since I'm at sea level and used a 9 1/2" pan this should not have happened. This resulted in a misshapen top, which was also badly cracked. Secondly, the cheesecake was not smooth at all, but rather grainy (and I did beat it for the 20 minutes like the directions said). Lastly, this cheesecake is very bland and boring. I only had one tablespoon of lemon juice but I can't imagine that making a very big difference in the taste. Overall I think it was a big expense for something just not worth it.

      I know this recipe and have made it many times. It comes close to a German cheesecake and since I am of German heritage and can't get Quark ( similar to ricotta) here this is as close as I can get to the real thing :) Thanks for posting this . Ri

      This was delicious, however, I'm at 6000 ft altitude and it overflowed my pan by at least an inch. Thank goodness I had a sheet pan below it. I've never had any issues with our altitude, but next time I may cut back by one egg, and add more flour.
