Beat the eggs with the sugar

If you have a food processor, like us, you can use it to make this cake. We used the Thermomix. Alternatively you can use the traditional methods of hand beating and whisking.
The word ricotta means 're-cooked' in Italian, and derives from the fact that the cheese is obtained from 're-cooking' the whey that remains after the production of pecorino or Caciotta cheeses.
