Rhubarb-Apple Cake

Finish with our signature cherry-almond topping, and you’ve got dessert!

9 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
3 large eggs
1¼ cup flour
1 cup fresh ricotta
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
Zest of 1 lemon
1 apple, such as Pink Lady, peeled and grated
2-3 stalks rhubarb, chopped
F&L cherry-almond topping
Confectioner’s sugar for serving

1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Butter and flour a 9 or 10-inch springform pan.

2. Cream the butter and sugar in a standing mixer until light and fluffy. On the lowest speed, add the eggs one at a time. Slowly add the flour, salt, ricotta, lemon zest, baking powder, rhubarb and apple.

3. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smooth the top and top with F&L cherry-almond topping. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and the sides start to pull away from the pan. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn the cake out of the pan and cool completely on the rack. Sift powdered sugar over top and serve with more freshly-sliced apples.
