Poppy seed and ricotta cake with lemon curd


You'll need

750 gm firm ricotta 250 gm softened cream cheese 200 gm caster sugar 6 eggs 400 gm condensed milk 200 gm poppy seeds For dusting: plain flour   Lemon curd 250 gm butter, coarsely chopped 250 gm caster sugar 6 eggs, beaten Finely grated rind and juice of 6 lemons

Method

  • 01
  • For lemon curd, melt butter in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water, add sugar and stir until dissolved (1-2 minutes), add eggs, stir to combine, then add lemon rind and juice and stir continuously until thick and smooth (2-3 minutes). Strain through a coarse sieve into a bowl, cover closely with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set (1-2 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 160C. Beat ricotta and cream cheese in an electric mixer until very smooth. Add sugar, beat to combine, then add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add condensed milk, poppy seeds and 400gm lemon curd, mix to combine, then pour into a buttered and floured 26cm-diameter springform pan and tap gently to expel any air bubbles. Bake until just cooked through with a slight wobble (1-1¼ hours), cool completely in tin, then serve with remaining lemon curd.
This recipe is from the October 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“I must tell you about a cake we had recently at The Pickled Sisters Cafe in Wahgunyah near Rutherglen in north-east Victoria. It was a poppy seed and ricotta cake and it was beautiful – light and not too sweet. Would you please be able to ask them for the recipe?”
