I tried this yesterday, and it’s a nice change of pace. Dense and not too sweet. It would be good for brunch, and I think you could use any kind of fruit you want.

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 t. salt
2 t. baking powder

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 eggs
16 oz. ricotta
1 t. vanilla
2 cups raspberries or blackberries (fresh or frozen)
Powdered sugar (optional)

Grease and flour a 9” round cake pan. Preheat oven 350.

Beat eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla. Add ricotta and mix well. Add dry ingredients, and mix just until well blended. Gently fold in berries, reserving some to arrange on top.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Arrange reserved berries on top.
Bake 50-60 minutes or until center tests done.
Cool and dust with powdered sugar.

Next time, I will experiment with either peaches or cherries with almond extract, or blueberries with lemon. Nuts on top and sugar crystals might be good too.

It is especially refreshing in summertime.I bet strawberries,blueberries,red currants,sour cherries or peaches

I always put lemon juice in my cheese cakes with the rind,definitely aromatic especially if it sat in the fridge overnight.

Lol, not much left.
You are right...the basic cake is very much like cheesecake and it would be good with all kinds of fruit and flavorings. Iím thinking coconut pineapple, or apple cinnamon, too.
I added some lemon rind to mine, but I think it fought with the vanilla. When I use lemon, Iíll leave the vanilla out.

Does it leave the pan willingly or might a spring-form pan be a good alternative?

I used a black coated cake pan with just cooking spray and flour, and it fell right out. If you are worried, a springform would be great too.

Does this need to be refrigerated for hours before slicing like cheesecake?

It looks very tasty.

No, it is a very firm, dense cake. Room temp is fine.

Yes!!

Do you think you could add less sugar, eliminate the fruit from cooking, and macerate them with sugar to add after?

Oh... or add a small amount fruit flavored liquor to the berries....
