|Easy and elegant!
This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Orange Almond Ricotta Cheesecake. This light, barely sweet cake is scented with Amaretto and Orange Zest. It comes together remarkably quickly for a cheesecake and bakes up perfectly. I think this cake is ideal to serve after a meal because it’s not too heavy. We enjoyed a piece with a small glass of Sauternes.

Every single time I see your sunday posts, I want to go and bake from the baked books. Maybe I should join you the weekends when I’m not posting elsewhere… this cheesecake is custom made for me! I swear!
Excellent choice. I’ve made this recipe before and it is everything that you say. I’m a Sicilian American and always on the lookout for great Italian recipes so that I can keep up the time honored tradition of cooking and baking for my family as my grandmother did. We go crazy during St. Joseph’s Feast Day and Christmas with all the Italian sweets and breads on the altar. Thanks for reminding me I need to make this again!
