step-by-step
instructions
1 Make the batter

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 350°F. Wash and dry the orange; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the orange to get 1 tablespoon (reserving the rest of the orange to make the glaze). In a small pan, heat the butter on medium-high until melted (or melt in a medium bowl in the microwave). Transfer to a medium bowl. Add the eggs, ricotta, sugar, vanilla powder, and orange zest. Whisk to thoroughly combine. Add the almond flour and cornbread mix; whisk to incorporate.

2 Bake the cake

Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish. Transfer the batter to the baking dish; spread into an even layer. Bake, rotating the baking dish halfway through, 18 to 22 minutes, or until the cake is set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven. Let cool to room temperature (for quicker cooling, place in the refrigerator).

3 Make the glaze & serve your dish

Meanwhile, halve the orange crosswise. Squeeze the juice into a bowl; add the cream cheese frosting. Whisk to combine. Top the cooled cake with the glaze and spread into an even layer; cut into equal-sized pieces. Enjoy!
