This is not your typical dense, heavy cheesecake that is made with cream cheese.

Using ricotta cheese gives the cake a fluffier and lighter texture!




32 oz. Ricotta Cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
6 eggs
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 3/4 tsp. orange zest
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt




Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Set rack in the middle of the oven.

Grease a 9″ baking dish.

Blend all ingredients together until mixture is smooth.
Pour mixture into baking dish.

Bake in the center of the oven for about 1 to 1-1/4 hours, until a light golden color.

Make sure the center is fairly firm, and the point of a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack.

Cover, and chill until served.
