This Italian lemon ricotta cake recipe seems to be a bit half baked
There’s a lot of talk about food being “authentic”, these days, and as someone who once bit into a wax pear, I’m very much in favour of this. When Twitter user Miss Molly decided to find a traditional Italian recipe, its authenticity seemed to have lost something in translation.
I was looking for a recipe for a traditional Italian lemon ricotta cake. This looked great until I got onto the instructions. I can only assume it was translated from the Italian into English via several other languages using an internet translate app pic.twitter.com/pmI9n7WE0r
