Peach & Ricotta-Cheese Cake

A couple of years ago I found an amazing peach cake recipe and it soon became a favorite of mine. Unfortunately, I lost the recipe. So of course, I tried to make my own version.

I am pretty sure my version has much less sugar than the original one. But it has just enough of it 😋!
