Lemon Ricotta-Almond Cake ( Gluten-Free )

This is a beautifully rich gluten-free cake that unlike many GF cakes will stay moist for days. It's based on a cake from the blog Lucullian Delights. The delicate tastes of almond and lemon compliment each other in a really wonderful way. This would taste great with fresh fruit. I prefer the Almond Meal/Flour from Bob's Red Mill, which can be bought at most health food stores or online. Make sure the gluten-free flour mix you use contains xanthan or guar gum! Pamela's works best.
