I am a fan of Ricotta!!! I love it in food (think cannelloni with ricotta and spinach mmmmm), but I also enjoy it in desserts. It gives your pastry extra creaminess… and that’s what makes it so particularly delicious. For this recipe for an Orange Ricotta Cake, I used Zùsto as the sweetener.

Hi, I’m Yasmine from the pastry blog Tartes Yaya. As well as running my blog, I work full time as an IT project manager. Baking is my creative outlet, but I also enjoy sports (jogging, hiking, aerial dance and horse riding).
I’m mum to an 8 year old boy, Ilyas, and a 6 year old girl, Fatou. In August 2018, Ilyas was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disease that is not caused by eating too much sugar… just to clarify that! ;)).Even though a type 1 diabetic can eat whatever they want and don’t have to follow a special diet, their body has greater difficulty in processing real sugars because the body is not able to produce insulin itself or manage insulin spikes properly.
My son’s diabetes led me to discover Zùsto and since then, Zùsto has been my favourite sugar substitute!
