To begin this preparation, we must first make the dough that will serve as the base and cover of the cake. For this we add in a cup the butter and the sugar, which we will beat until forming a soft and whitish cream, and in this point we will add a whole egg and the rind of a lemon, to continue beating until everything integrates very well.

In another bowl or on a table, sift the wheat flour with the baking powder, and make a volcano to add the preparation of butter with sugar and egg, to start kneading with your hands, to form a broken dough, it does not need to be very homogeneous, that is its texture.

We cover a mold for cake or a demould, with 2/3 of our dough, we reserve, in another cup we add the sugar, the ricotta and the vanilla, and we integrate it very well. Then we add the zest and the juice of a lemon, and the spoonful of corn starch, we mix everything very well.

he mold with the dough, add a layer of dulce de leche, and continue pouring the mixture with ricotta, to finish making the cake with the other third of dough we had left, adding it crumbled all over the surface, to take it to a preheated oven at 180 ° C for 40 minutes.

I love to accompany this cake, with a piece of Guayana cheese, and you’ll say, “More cheese!”, but the contrast of flavors that this combination gives, is simply amazing. Great to serve with a good black coffee, in short I repeat, is one of my favorite desserts.
