  • 3 cup(s) strawberries hulled & quartered
  • 2 cup(s) raspberries
  • 1 cup(s) blackberries
  • 1 cup(s) sugar
  • 5 large egg yolks lightly beaten with a fork
  • 1 pound(s) fresh whole-milk ricotta
  • 1/4 cup(s) mascarpone
  • 2 tablespoon(s) flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon(s) orange zest
  • 2 teaspoon(s) Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) fleur de sel
  • 5 large egg whites
  • butter for greasing the pan


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare berries: in a medium bowl, gently toss berries with 1/3 cup sugar. Let berries rest & macerate while you make the cake.
  2. 2. Add ingredients to a food processor in the following order, pulsing briefly after each addition: remaining sugar, egg yolks, ricotta, mascarpone, flour, baking powder, orange zest, Grand Marnier, & fleur de sel. After all ingredients have been added, blend until smooth. Transfer to a mixing bowl & set aside.
  3. 3. Use an electric mixer to beat egg whites until just short of stiff. Gently fold egg whites into the ricotta mixture.
  4. 4. Pour batter into a buttered 9" springform pan. Bake until center of cake springs back when touched, about 45 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before releasing sides of pan. Meanwhile, drain berries in a colander. Serve cake at room temperature, topped with berries.
