This cake is simply wonderful! I have a Wolfe Convection Steam Oven, and this cake turns out beautifully baked, using the convection humid mode. This cake cake can be made for breakfast or dessert. For dessert, I would serve it with an added drizzle of my berry sauce.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher slat
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups ricotta
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup frozen raspberries, divided
Preheat oven to 350º. Line a 9"-diameter cake pan with parchment paper and lightly coat with coconut oil. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
Whisk eggs, ricotta, and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth; fold into dry ingredients until just blended. Then fold in butter, followed by 3/4 cup raspberries; taking care not to crush the berries. Scrape the batter into prepared pan. Scatter the remaining 1/4 cup raspberries over the top of the mixture.
Bake the cake until golden brown, and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, approximately 50-60 minutes. Let cool at least 20 minutes before releasing the cake from the pan.
*In a Wolfe Convection Steam Oven, set your oven to mode- Convection Humid. Preheat the oven to 325º. Bake the cake for 45 minutes and check doneness.
