Fresh and light, this tea cake is perfect for anytime you're craving something sweet, but not toooo sweet.
The lovely thing about the Mamablip Orange and Ricotta cake is its lightness, and adaptability for overall citrus variety fruits. If you're lucky enough to get your hands on some glorious Sicilian blood oranges, defiintely use those here! If you've got lovely navel oranges, use those.

Representing a healthy, light and simple approach to dessert or sweet snacking, there's just nothing about this tea cake not to love! Grab an orange, and get cracking! Orange and Ricotta quick bread was never so quick, or so delicious!

Using up some seasonal citrus is such a great feeling for your taste buds and your body, so if you're looking to learn more about how to use your seasonal citrus in Italian cooking, be sure to check out the Mamablip Citrus recipes, as well as our Blog articles, Italian Citrus Fruits Part 1 and Classic Citrus Fruits Part 2 ), and how to use Italian Citrus in a variety of different ways.
