    I made this last night, with a few small changes (I upped the sugar to 1 cup, zested 3 lemons instead of 2) and it was DELICIOUS! My colleagues are very happy today 😀

    do you drain the ricotta?

    • Reply flavias_flavors December 3, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      If you buy fresh ricotta from an Italian market, then you should drain it well before using it as it contains a fair amount of liquid. However, if you use the store-bought ricotta that comes in plastic containers, there is usually no need to drain it as it has very little liquid. Use your judgement and look carefully. Err on the side of caution and drain the ricotta if there is any liquid just to ensure a delicious end result. Happy baking!

    I made it twice now, really good and easy for a novice like me in baking .
    Do you have a recipe for the lemon glaze ?

    • Reply flavias_flavors July 24, 2018 at 12:41 pm

      The lemon glaze is simply freshly squeezed lemon juice (strained to remove seeds) from 1 juicy lemon mixed with enough confectioner’s sugar to make it thick yet still pourable. Enjoy!
