A combination of cake and cheesecake, this delicious Italian Lemon Ricotta Cake is a one-bowl, no-mixer recipe that you can throw together in minutes.
Melt butter in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl (on high power for 45-60 seconds). Remove from microwave and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Add sugar, eggs, lemon zest and extracts. Whisk together until well blended. Add ricotta and stir until light and fluffy (about 30 seconds).
10. Scoop icing onto the top of the cake. Spread (with an angled spatula) to the edges and down the sides of the cake. Decorate with edible flowers, if desired. Allow icing to set before slicing. Can be refrigerated, but bring back to room temperature before serving.
