Lemon Ricotta Cake

Recipe by Andrea at @eatnik0nline




  • 150g butter
  • 3/4 cup Natvia Natural Sweetener
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup smooth ricotta

  • 1 tbsp lemon zest (approximately 1 large lemon)
  • 3/4 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • Fresh strawberries and cream to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 160ºC. Grease a 17-18cm cake tin with butter and sprinkle with flour.
  2. In a mixer, beat butter and sweetener until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, ricotta, lemon juice and lemon zest and mix to combine.
  3. Add in the flour and salt and mix again until incorporated.
  4. Whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold this into the cake batter. Pour into cake tin and bake for 45 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
