  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup neutral-flavored oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Glaze (optional)

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice

Indicates item can be purchased at Tenuta’s.


  1. Prep: Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
  2. Whisk dry ingredients: Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Cream sugar, zest, and oil: In a large bowl, combine the sugar and lemon zest with your fingers until fragrant. Add oil and whisk until incorporated.
  4. Beat eggs and ricotta: Whisk in the eggs one at a time. Add the ricotta and vanilla extract and beat until smooth and creamy.
  5. Combine batter: Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until just combined.
  6. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Cool and glaze (optional): Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool fully. Prepare the glaze (if using) and drizzle over the cooled cake.
  8. Tips: Ricotta quality: Use fresh, whole-milk ricotta for the best flavor and texture. If your ricotta is very wet, you might strain it for a little while to drain excess liquid.
  9. Flavor boost: Add a tablespoon of orange liqueur or a pinch of ground cinnamon for extra flavor dimension.
