|Cranberry Ricotta Breakfast Cake|
Ricotta on its own is a mellow cheese that leads its creaminess to create a nice moist crumb in baked goods. When used as a dessert cheese, ricotta pairs well with honey, cinnamon, almonds, chocolate, fruit and berries. When I am not enjoying a bowl of morning oatmeal, breads and pastries are the second best thing.
For this recipe I used dried cranberries instead of fresh; and soaked them in Grand Marnier for 4 hours. Also I reduced the amount of sugar. But other than these few tweaks I stuck pretty close to the recipe as written.
