Created by rossella rago,

This cake is another take on Nonna's classic Ciambella. I love experimenting with bundt cakes and this one can bring a big whiff of spring into the air. A lemon scented cake is accented by sweet fresh strawberries and creamy ricotta. Perfect for your Amore! your social media marketing partner
