Directions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter and line a 9- inch cake pan with parchment paper.

In a bowl, combine the sugar, eggs and cornstarch.

Using a hand mixer beat ingredients until smooth and lump-free.

Add the ricotta and mix on low speed until well combined. Add cream then lemon zest and juice, mix until smooth. Pour the batter into the cake pan.
