Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Strawberry-Blueberry Blintze Cake

Much like an Italian ricotta cake but simpler and far tastier with the addition of strawberries and the entire dessert swimming in sweet blueberry sauce. Might as well start baking before the sun shines bright!


For 9 Serving(s)


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons butter or maragarine, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped strawberries
  • Blintze Sauce:
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Strawberry-Blueberry Blintze Cake Directions

    Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Grease a 9-inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl, add ricotta, yogurt, melted butter, eggs and vanilla and vigorously whisk(or use an electric mixer with a beater attachment) until smooth. In another bowl, blend flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add to egg mixture, slowly, and continue mixing until batter is smooth. Fold in strawberries and pour into prepared pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is nicely browned and the sides have pulled away from the pan. You don't want this cake too dry so if you insert a toothpick in the middle, you do NOT want it to come out perfectly clean.
    Meanwhile, make Blintze sauce by combining all ingredients in a medium saucepan, stir and cook over medium heat until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve with cake.
    Remove cake from oven to cool before cutting into desired sizes and serve with Blintze sauce.
