I also wanted to say that Plum cake looks interesting, esp with ricotta - a cheese I don t eat or cook with much.

Il plumcake di ricotta è una ricetta classica che preparo da molti anni... questa volta non ho resistito a aggiungere anche cioccolato e menta per renderlo più goloso.

Molto interessante l aggiunta della menta. E il contrasto tra soffice pasta e croccanti noci e un piacere.
