For the Italian version click here!!!
Today I have no much to say....the last few days have been quite sad for my country, Italy. Everything seams to be worthless after what happened over the last weekend.
I'll just leave you this quick and delicious recipe to give a bit of sweetness to these bitter days...



  • 150g ricotta cheese
  • 50g semolina
  • 250 ml milk
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 70g dark chocolate
  • 1 knob of butter
  • Lemon zest
  • Vanilla essence

Heat up the milk with the lemon zest and leave in infusion for 20 minutes. Discard the lemon zest and bring the milk with the butter to the boil. Add slowly the semolina and whisk continuously. Allow to cool completely. 
In a bowl beat the eggs and sugar. Then combine with an electric whisker the sieved ricotta with the cold semolina. Add the ricotta mixture to the eggs, mix well then add the vanilla essence and chopped dark chocolate. Pour cake mixture in the cake mould and bake in a warm oven at 170ÂșC for 30/40 minutes. 

This doses are for a mini cake, about 12 cm in diametre. I used the mini cake mould from Pavoni idea
