1/4 cup of dried banana
1/4 cup of dried apples

500g of ricotta
1 tsp of Vanilla essence
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup of sugar
1- Stir the Ricotta withthe furit mixture, then add the vanilla.
2- Over simmiring water (double boiler) whisk the egg yolks and
sugar until it becomes thick and creamy.
3-Fold the egg yolk mixture with the Ricotta mixture evenly.
4- Line a loaf pan wiht a layed of clingfilm (plastic wrap). Pour the Ricotta mixture
and level evenly.
5- Chill in the freezer overnight.
Chopped dried fruits and nuts + I added chocochip

and chocochips only ;)
4 egg yolks and 1/2 cup of sugar
