  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • Confectioner’s sugar, for dusting, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the ricotta cheese, eggs, vanilla, and almond extract. Gradually add in the melted butter, whisking until combined and smooth.
  • Add the ricotta mixture to the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until just combined. Don’t over mix. Gently fold in the raspberries, being careful not to over mix or the batter will turn pink. It’s ok if you get a few streaks of pink.
  • Grease a 9-inch springform pan generously with nonstick cooking spray. Scrape the batter evenly into the pan and sprinkle the top with turbinado sugar and sliced almonds.
  • Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Let the cake cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then carefully remove the sides of the springform pan.
  • Dust the cake with confectioner’s sugar, if desired. Cut the cake into slices and serve!
