  • 1/2 cup flour sifted
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Preheat your oven to 350℉. Line a 8×4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. If you dont have a loaf pan use a round 6 or 7 inch cake pan.

  • In one medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and ricotta cheese for one minute.

  • Next whisk in the tangerine zest from ONE tangerine and the juice from both tangerines and the sugar until incorporated. Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix in with a spatula.
