Back home from a brief visit to India I found a rather fresh Shanghai, with lots of rain and wind. And what is better than turning on the oven to comfort yourself? Among other things, despite the fact that I love spicy foods, the idea of sinking my teeth into something sweet and known was quite loose. So here’s a ring-shaped cake!

Bowl, whisk and a little patience while it’s baking, nothing else is needed, it’s very simple. This ricotta cake is rich in hazelnuts, the texture is fine, soft and moist. Perfect for a nice breakfast or a winter tea time. And I assure you that a nice melted dark chocolate flow will throw you directly into heaven!
