Sicilian Ricotta Cheesecake

  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. Set rack in the middle of the oven. Grease 22cm spring-form pan.
  2. Place the ricotta in a large mixing bowl, and beat it as smooth as possible, or alternatively use a rubber spatula. Stir the sugar and flour together thoroughly into the ricotta. Stir in the eggs 1 at a time. Blend in the orange zest, liqueur and salt. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the center of the oven for about 90 mins, until a light golden color. Make sure the center is fairly firm, and the point of a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. It will sink slightly as it cools. Cover, and chill till serving time.
  4. Heat marmalade and lemon juice to a pouring consistency, add to top of cake.
