The first time I tasted baked ricotta cakes was when I was living near the Gourmet Platter store in Corrimal. Once a week they had tastings of new products and I fell in love with the texture and flavour of their ricotta cakes with ham and capers. The recipe isn't difficult and you'll be surprised how good it tastes. If you spend the time whipping the egg whites you'll find the texture similar to a souffle - llght and fluffy. As Philip said, "Just close your eyes and enjoy."

This is a versatile pastry-free quiche that works well with different vegetables and cheeses. Keep the potato as a constant, but try grated carrots or thinly sliced leeks in place of zucchini. Replace the emmentaler with gouda or cheddar cheese.
