This quick-and-easy dessert is lighter than traditional cheesecake, since it calls for ricotta instead of cream cheese.

    I made this two days ago, following the video instructions (which are slightly different to the written version). I ate some after refrigerating and initially I was disappointed - it was too eggy. But two days later in the fridge it has developed into something quite delicious. The lemon flavour has developed and the "egginess" has diminished. I have also found that you have to have it with strawberries to really make it sing. I used strawberries macerated in lemon juice and sugar. Lovely

    Love it. I do us my free standing mixer to mix like a regular cheesecake,whip it up!. The taste is great and with a hint of orange to finish. Will make this one again and again.

    So disappointed in texture - grainy. I think it might have been better made in a mixer and really whipped. Well, just another recipe that needs improvement

    I've been trying to get a hold of my Grandmother's ricotta cheesecake recipe. No one in the family seems to have it, so I though I would try this. This is NOT my grandmother's recipe. Way to many eggs. Tasted like an egg cheesecake, not a ricotta cheesecake.

    We've bake many cheesecake and thought we'd give the ricotta recipe a go. Mistake...the day after it cooled it was grainy and tasteless except for the orange rind. Complete waste of ingredients.
