It isn’t very often that I make something exactly as it is in the recipe.

But this cake, as soon as I saw it in bon appetit, I knew it had to be made.

It’s raspberry, and ricotta, and SO easy. And anytime you can have cake for breakfast, well how can you pass that up. With just a few simple ingredients, I really didn’t have to, or want to, change a thing.

So I made the cake as is, and the batter alone was heavenly. My kitchen smelled amazing. I couldn’t  and didn’t wait for it to cool to grab a slice.

Do yourself a favor and make this cake; you won’t be sorry. Well maybe if you eat half of it like I did, and you’ll be spending the better part of a week on the treadmill working it off, you’d be sorry.  I’m not even that sorry, it was worth the sore ankles and knees.

And just in case you have not read the march issue of bon appetit (which you should  because it is all about the comfort food)

here’s the recipe
