The instruction how to make Mandarin cassata cake

  1. Preheat oven to 180u00b0C or 160u00b0C fan. Grease a 20cm square cake pan and line with baking paper.
  2. Process eggs and sugar in a food processor until pale and creamy. Add the butter, milk, vanilla extract and lemon zest and process until well combined. Add the flour and baking powder and pulse until just combined. Transfer to the prepared pan and smooth the surface with a spatula. Bake for 35-40 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

Cut the cake in half horizontally and spread the ricotta mixture evenly over the base. Top with the remaining cake, pressing down slightly. Chill for 15 mins. Dust with extra icing sugar just before serving.
