Why Use Ricotta Cheese in Gluten Free Baking?

Ricotta cheese isn’t just for savory dishes; it also works wonders in baking! Here’s why:

  1. Moisture and Texture: Ricotta cheese adds moisture and richness to baked goods, resulting in a softer, more tender texture. Its creamy consistency enhances the overall texture of cakes, muffins, and pastries.
  2. Subtle Flavor: While not overpowering, ricotta cheese has a subtle creamy flavor to baked treats. It pairs exceptionally well with fruits like blueberries, enhancing their natural sweetness without overshadowing other ingredients.
  3. Versatility: Ricotta cheese is incredibly versatile and can be incorporated into various baked goods, from traditional cakes to pancakes and even cookies. Its mild taste allows it to adapt to both sweet and savory recipes, making it a valuable ingredient in the kitchen.
  4. Nutritional Benefits: In addition, ricotta cheese also offers nutritional benefits. It’s a good source of protein, calcium, and other essential nutrients, making it a wholesome addition to baked goods.
  5. Binding Agent: Ricotta cheese acts as a binding agent in baking, helping to hold ingredients together and create a cohesive texture. This is particularly useful in gluten-free recipes where alternative gluten free flours may require additional support to prevent crumbling.

The Flavor:

Experience bursts of flavor with every bite! Infused with fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla, this breakfast cake recipe is at another level of deliciousness.

Irresistibly Moist Texture:

The sweet blueberries not only enhance the cake’s flavor but also maintain its moist texture, offering a rustic charm that will satisfy your sweet tooth every time.


Perfect for any time of day! Whether you enjoy it for breakfast, brunch, snack, or dessert, you’ll never know this ricotta cake with blueberries is gluten-free.

Why Use Coconut Sugar?

Discover the benefits of using coconut sugar in baking! Not only does it elevate the taste of the cake, but it also offers health advantages. With a lower glycemic index and higher levels of essential minerals and antioxidants compared to white sugar, coconut sugar is a better choice.

Simple and amazing and not just for breakfast! Thanks for a fresh light desert that doesn't taste gluten free.


Going to try it now, I will keep you posted!!


you can try, I have not made it with almond flour, so I don’t know how the cake will turn out, sorry Karen.


Is it possible to use almond flour instead of the gluten free flour? Been using it in my banana breads and it is fabulous! Thank you!


This is soo good


Thank you for letting me know. Always nice to hear positive feedback, Kristina


Absolutely delicious! Friends and family that are not Gluten Free are asking for the recipe.
