Spanish Cheese Custard (Quesada Pasiega)
1 lb (450 g) ricotta or cottage cheese 4 oz (125 g) butter, melted 1 cup (250 ml) sugar 4 eggs 3 Tbs (45 ml) lemon juice 1 tsp (5 ml) grated lemon zest 2 cups (500 ml) all-purpose flour 1/4 cup (60 ml) bread crumbs mixed with 1 Tbs (15 ml) ground cinnamon
Beat the ricotta, butter, sugar, eggs, lemon juice, and lemon zest until smooth. Add the flour and beat just until no lumps remain. Grease a large cake pan (8x14 inches, 20x36 cm) and coat with the bread crumb mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in a preheated 350F (180C) oven until set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature before unmolding and cutting into squares. Makes about 24 servings.
