Preparation

Prepare the pastry by mixing the flour with the sugar, baking powder, eggs and butter. Mix vigorously until you get a smooth dough and then leave in the fridge for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the creamed ricotta by mashing it with a fork and gradually incorporating the sifted icing sugar. Roll out the pastry to a thickness of 1/2 cm in the bottom of a 22cm cake tin and prick the bottom with a fork. Add a first layer of the creamed ricotta, then the second with jam and finish with strips made from the leftover pastry. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C for about 30 minutes. Let it cool completely and sprinkle with a little icing sugar.
