If you're after a quick and easy cake that is also gluten-free, then this Thermomix Lemon & Ricotta Cake is just what you need. It's deliciously moist and has the yummiest flavour! There's really no beating that lemon, ricotta and almond combination!
The best thing about this cake is that it will take you less than 5 minutes to prepare. Yep, seriously. From start to finish, 5 minutes is all it takes! I absolutely love the fact that you can grate your lemon zest in the Thermomix... it's just SO much easier! Then it's just a matter of adding in the rest of the ingredients, mixing it all together and pouring it into your favourite cake tin. Oh and then adding a little sprinkle of flaked almonds on top just before cooking - they give the cake a delicious crunch!
