Cranberry Ricotta Cake
This light, buttery cake is studded with jewel-like fresh cranberries. The fruit gets tossed in granulated sugar before they’re sprinkled over the cake batter, and the sugar crystalizes into a thin, delicious crust as the cake bakes. Ricotta is the not so secret ingredient that gives the cake’s crumb delectable moistness. Serve up a big wedge of the sweet-tart delicacy for dessert—or for breakfast. It pairs equally well with coffee and tea as it does with a glass of fresh orange juice. Refrigerate the cake in an airtight container for up to three days.
