How to make a blueberry ricotta cake

The Italian blueberry ricotta cake. It’s not quite a cheesecake, and not quite a cake, but somewhere in the middle.



  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • zest of a lemon
  • 3/4 cup fresh blueberries


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 9 x 2-inch pan (I used a springform pan).
  2. For the batter: In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add the milk, shortening, egg and vanilla, beating till smooth.
  4. Spoon the batter into a greased 9 x 9 x 2-inch pan Sprinkle the blueberries over the batter.
  5. For the topping: In a small bowl, beat the eggs till frothy, then beat in the cheese, sugar and vanilla. Spread this mixture evenly over the blueberries.
  6. Bake the cake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until it’s golden brown around the edges.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool to lukewarm before serving.



Buon Mangiata!
