Today we decided to share a Gluten-Free Ricotta Cake Recipe from The Gluten-Free Cookbook.
Originated from Poland, this cheesecake ("Polish sernik") rises quite high during baking, but will sink back down as it cools, and, like many cheesecakes, does a final bit of slow cooking in a turned-off oven.
If you prefer, you can serve this cheesecake with melted chocolate, berry compote, or caramel sauce.
150 g (5 oz) unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for the pan
20 g (2 tablespoons) potato starch, plus extra for the pan

1 kg (2 1/4 lb) ricotta cheese
15 g (1 tablespoon) vanilla sugar
