I am always eager to try new pound cake recipe AND really love the recipe ideas and videos online at IFood TV. So when I saw a pound cake recipe in their newsletter recently, made with ricotta cheese, I immediately knew I had to try the recipe with our fresh chevre. Creamy and smooth with a similar texture to ricotta, I had a feeling Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre would be a good swap.

And was it ever! The cake was dense, moist, with a lovely bright orange fragrance. The flavor was unique and rich and had me longing for a second piece. I brought the cake into the creamery office for a taste test and everyone agreed, soooooo good!

That cake was gone almost immediately.
