Ciao from Italy!

The sun is shining in this part of the world, it is warm and very pleasant and ice cream tastes fabulous! There was a long queue at the ice cream shop today as people at this time of year are craving for a melt in your mouth ice cream after such a long winter of "abstinence". Besides, the first ice cream of the season always tastes better!

Today I bought artichokes at the local market so I am going to prepare something tasty which I will post later on in the week. This time I'd like to share this easy ricotta and coconut cake with raspberries which needs no flour. It is like a kind of cheesecake very soft indeed.. and moreish!
I must say goodbye now, my children are calling for another stroll at the park and probably more ice cream.. well let's make the most!

A presto!

    Have you made this without the coconut? Could I use almond?

    • Alida

      Yes you can just leave coconut out and add ground almond instead.
