Happy New Year Cappuccino Cake

so i'm back! and i have so many many recipes waiting to be told... but let me start from the end, with yesterday's night new-year-cake...

Happy New Year Cappuccino Cake

for the cake: whisk 4 eggs with a mixer long enough to see the volume double. add 20ml of strong espresso (possibly cold), 115gr of caster sugar, vanilla essence and keep on whisking. add 100gr of melted and cooled white chocolate. finally, all 125gr of flour. bake in preheated oven at 180degrees for 25 minutes.

for the filling: mix 250gr of ricotta cheese and 20ml of coffee liquor

for the topping
: melt 200gr of white chocolate with 100 gr of butter and let cool. add 80gr of icing sugar and 100ml of whipped heavy cream. let it cool in the fridge for 10 minutes or until the topping is not too liquid to fall from the cake and liquid enough to let you spread it on the cake. don't worry, i messed it up, too. but i'm confident i will be more familiar with icing in a couple of more tries :)

come iniziare al meglio il nuovo anno se non con un cappuccino?? auguri a tutti!!
