Preparation

Separate the eggs. Whip the egg whites in a separate bowl and set aside.
Beat the yolks together with the sugar. Add the seed oil, ricotta (try making it yourself with our recipe). Mix in the flour, a little at a time. Add the lemon juice, a few chocolate chips or chocolate shavings, and lastly, fold in the whipped egg whites. Keep folding until the batter is creamy and uniform.
