This is a Traditional recipe from Alentejo usually done at farmhouses because the farmers do their own cheese and they use it to prepare this kind of cake-pudding.
1 lb (450 gr) soft cheese (riccota, requeijão)
7 oz (200 gr) granulated sugar
4 oz (110 gr) flour
4 egg yolks
6 whole eggs
1 coffeespoon cinnamon
Combine the sugar with the cheese, to obtain a soft paste. Add the flour, the cinnamon, the eggs and the egg yolks. Mix very well. Prepare a baking tray , 8x12 inches (20.5 x 30.5) well greased and lined.
The lining paper must also be greased and sprinkled with flour. Pour the mixture onto this and bake at 180ºc/350ºF/Gas 4 for 20 minutes, until firm and golden.
Cut the cake into slices and sprinkle with icing sugar or cinnamon.
