Baked Thyme and Lemon Ricotta

Yes, this baked ricotta cheese was made in a baby bundt tin. Originally I was going to bake it in a mini loose bottom tin. I swear I own one, well at least I thought I did. After a solid 30 minutes looking for it (probably only 10, but I have the patience of a Labrador with food in front of them). It seems that senility has set in, and I don’t own one. Or I have put them away somewhere very clever. Even as I type this I sure I own two of them. You know as well as I do that they will turn up when I end up purchasing new ones.

A mini bundt tin was my solution. Not quite sure if I like the way it looks, but does make it easy to cut. As a blogger friend of mine made a very clever suggestion on my instagram feed. Go retro, fill the hole with something, olives, grissini, curly parsley? Actually a really good suggestion, but photos had already been taken and the baked ricotta massacred.
