Expert Tips

You can make this dessert with any dried fruit, like raisins or dried apricots.

My grandmother used to prepare this loaf with raisins; I love it because it's sweet but not as sweet as traditional cake. The texture is a little different, but still delicious. You can add any type of dried fruit to the mixture. You can also add small pieces of nuts. I invite you to try it out and let me know what you think!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9x5 inch loaf pan with a layer of baking spray. Set aside.
  • 2 Pour the flour and baking powder into a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • 3 Using a hand mixer at medium heat, whip the ricotta and sugar for 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved.
  • 4 Add the butter and continue to whip until completely incorporated. Add the eggs one by one. Continue whipping while adding the milk and lemon juice. Once everything is well mixed, reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture in 3 parts.
  • 5 Add the prunes and use a spatula to softy mix.
  • 6 Transfer the mix into the mold and bake for 35-40 minutes or until you can poke the middle with a knife and have it come out clean.
